  1. German soldiers photograph album of service with a Flak unit in occupied Norway.

    German soldiers photograph album of service with a Flak unit in occupied Norway.

    A superbly presented and exhaustively (often humorously) captioned album of original photographs compiled by a young member of a German Flak unit posted to Norway in May 1940, shortly after the invasion. The first few photographs record his initial service in the Reichsarbeitsdienst, Abteilung 215, "W" company, from 4 April to 25 October 1938. In December he appears to have been transferred to the Düsseldorf Flak-Kaserne, and then the Münsterlager training camp. Learn More

    [Typed letter signed together with an inscribed photograph of the author.]

    Tagore writes to an unnamed recipient: "Dear Madam: I have been touched by the story of your suffering as related in your letter of Jan 12; I permit myself to offer you my sympathy. The demands made on my health and on my time are too many to enable me to write to you as often as I could wish. Yours sincerely, Rabindranath Tagore". Santi-Niketan was the ashram founded by Tagore in 1901, ostensibly as a place of meditation for Hindus of all castes, though the gesture has also been situated within the "upsurge of swadeshi (nationalist) activity in Bengal (and other parts of India) around the turn of the century.
