Diekmann's Résumé (page 1 of the original document)

    This is the first page of Adolf Diekmann's Lebenslauf (Résumé) of 18th August 1942. I have included it so that you can have a look at some of the original source material that has been used to construct this site. The writing is a little hard to decipher at first, but gets easier with practice.

    As a starting point the first two sentences of the Résumé read: "Ich wurde als Sohn des Volksschullehrers Heinrich Diekmann und seiner Ehefrau Anna, geb(oren) Mohr, am 18. 12. 1914 in Magdeburg geboren. Ich habe einen Bruder u(nd) drei Schwestern, die älter sind als ich".
