Monday, Jan. 22nd, 1945

Eight big explosions between 9 and 10 o’clock last night. We had soy beans for breakfast; queer tasting but doubtless nourishing. New orders from the commandant: EVERYONE must report and stand for roll call whether they have medical certificates or not. Weak or bedridden ones may bring a chair and sit. Some of the poor men staggering around are ghastly. They ought to be flat in bed in the hospital.
