April 11, 1945

After 8 days of rest, I returned to the doctor as he had requested. Naturally, I told him I feel ill and have a fever. He gave me a thermometer and sent me into the usual room alone, so I rubbed and rubbed the thermometer like I did last Wednesday until it showed a fever of 38 °C. I waited till the nurse called me then handed over the thermometer. The doctor looked at it, I gave him and the nurse a cigarette, and he gave me 5 more days of rest. I have to see him again on Monday, then figure out what to do. I don’t want to go back to the factory, I’m tired of these cowardly Germans, these ugly people! Such rotten men.
