25. Mai 1946
25 May 46. The condition of the teeth is becoming more and more alarming. One comrade has already lost his entire set of teeth. The camp has a dentist, but he doesn't get any material. - I weigh 117 pounds (58.5 kg). - A week ago, 300 distrophics arrived at a convalescence camp in X. They are now in the hospital. On the foot march(!) there, 68 men collapsed and were taken to a military hospital in Riga.
The Russian camp commander, a colonel, has wooden fences torn down, chopped up, bundled, and then sold on his own account to supplement his salary. Other Russian officers have their papyrossi rations sold by landsers because they have no more money. Their pay is said to come irregularly. In May they still do not have their April pay.
East-West tensions intensify. The former allies accuse each other of their misdeeds, and in the process it becomes clear that they are all dirty, and that they have committed the same war crimes that they accuse the Germans of in Nuremberg (radio reports from German and Russian stations). I wonder if the prosecutors and judges in Nuremberg are not at least sometimes ashamed of themselves. But they are military men and politicians, American and Russian ones at that, and they sit in judgement on an enemy defeated with difficulty, on a feared and hated competitor. And behind the court is not least the - understandably - hateful international Jewry.
The Russians are afraid of partisans. A factory director requested a doctor, but the camp refused to send him. The factory was to fetch him itself. It was feared that the doctor would be taken to Latvian partisans.

- The author had reservations about Jews throughout his life, but he later never mentioned that he once believed this conspiracy theory.
