You can see it at the following link .... http://kresy-siberia.org/hom/element/english-szypowska-collection/autograph-book-from-wwii/We have a number of children’s autograph books in the Virtual Museum, but this one is an adult one. It was filled in during a sea voyage from Africa to the UK on board the Neu Amsterdam ship in March 1944. My mother and her sister had volunteered for the Polish Air Force Womens’ Auxiliary, and were on their way to England from Kidugala Tanzania, for this reason. Most of the entries are in Polish and the signatures are difficult to read, so if anyone can correct my guesses at the names, I would greatly appreciate it.There are 2 entries in English – seems like a couple of British blokes onboard may have been flirting my my Mom ! Of course, she was a 22 year old single gal at that time, so I am happy to think that she was being flirted with!
