His father was a loving parent, a scholar, a man of principle - and a German officer.

Herbst was a middle-class boy in a Lutheran family that saw value in Prussian military ideals and a mythic German past. His is a tale of moral awakening. He recalls his confusion as some of his classmates are no longer welcome at his school, and his consternation as he tries to reconcile what he learned from his favourite teachers and what was subsequently taught by their party replacements.

His description of walking to school the morning after Kristallnacht is clear and chilling.
