In December 1942, while Allied bombs rained on Berlin and Nazi troops fought for control of Stalingrad, 15-year-old Brigitte Eicke began keeping a diary. The young office apprentice was keen to practice her stenography skills, and for the next three years, she wrote in it every single day. For today's readers, it's a fascinating slice of social history. Here, Eicke and her friends took a gramophone along on a day trip to a lake outside Berlin in the summer of 1943. Even at the height of the war, she and her friends had fun whenever they could.
