Would like some help translating Letter written by German Police in occupied Poland

Post by Heartfeltzero » 03 Dec 2022 21:19

As stated in the title this letter was written by a German Police official while in Occupied Poland in 1940. I would like some help translating it. Unfortunately I can’t speak or read German, and google translate is unhelpful. There are 5 letters in total in the envelope. I’ve already hade page 1 translated in the past, this is page 2. I know it’s not super high quality or anything, unfortunately I don’t have a scanner or anything that can give me great zoom and resolution, I have to do what I can with my iPhone. I appreciate any help. And if someone manages to be able to read it no problem and would like to help translate the other 3 pages just let me know. Thank you!

Also the image will become much more clear once you click on it

There are no indications from the content of the page that the author of the letter is a police officer. At the time of writing, the author was working in Warsaw/PL. The content of the page is mostly of a purely private nature, so I will not provide a literal translation.
In the last paragraph there is a passage on the situation:
"The population has not yet come to terms with the fact that their proud Polish state is no more. They are on enemies' footing with the many Jews. There are no Gypsies."
This is followed by a change of subject.

There are 5 pages in total which at the time of posting this i just needed this one translated. The envelope has a bunch of information on it including stamps that show he was in a police battalion in Warsaw in 1940
