about

Jurgen Herbst’s account of growing up in Nazi Germany from 1928 to 1948 is a boy’s experience of anti-Semitism and militarism from the inside. Herbst was a middle-class boy in a Lutheran family that saw value in Prussian military ideals and a mythic German past. His memoir is a compelling, understated tale of moral awakening.

"A memoir of how a normal young man fared in a land that had, temporarily, gone mad. As such, it offers an unusual glimpse into a world most of us never experienced."—William R. Wineke, Wisconsin State Journal
