Monday 3rd May 1943

Holzman, down at the other end of the ward, was peeling an orange this morning when he was suddenly struck (one presumes) by a bright idea...

After a brief struggle with two patients, poor Holzman broke away, and seizing another table knife stabbed himself in the stomach with all his strength. Fortunately, the blunt knife did not penetrate far. After a few minutes struggle with a crowd of patients, he was overpowered and held down on his bed, sobbing and crying frantically.

Subsequently, he was carried down to No. 37.
