    It looks to be from a Gefreiter Heinz Zanzer. If the FpNr is 59205 then it is for 4./Pz.Rgt 2 but it is hard to be definite that the 4th number is a '0' due to the ink bleeding into the paper.

    Very interesting to see such a diary. With even printed reminders for instance of the Geerman invasions of Denmark and Norway 9 th April.

    At a glance (It`s not so easy to read):
    His adress ("Meine Anschrift"):
    Vordernberger Straße 40 in the town Eisenerz, state of Steiermark, Austria. He was engaged in Romania, see the commune Colosovca.

    With best wishes

    It looks interesting. I have it coming in from Maribor, Slovenia. It will be a couple of weeks. When I get it can I post some pictures and maybe we can find some cool little history about this guy and what he did?. paid 20 dollars for it. I don't know if its filled out all through the year or not. We will find out! bear with me until I get it and get some really good close up photos.

    "its kinda hard to read"? Maybe better pics will be more workable when it arrives, but in the meanwhile, I'm guessing the guy took a shell fragment to his right hand or else he was dictating to his pet chimp...
