Herbert's father is arrested

"My father came out of the back and says “Here I am..””

"When the Storm Troopers came to our house, knock on the door, standing next to my mother. When she opened the door, I can see him with his Nazi uniform on: swastika on his arm, leather boots, leather belt, leather shoulder straps…And he came in and pushed her to the floor of the foyer, and stepped in the middle of the foyer and says “Are there any dirty Jews here”—and I’m using again the word “dirty” for another word—“dirty Jews here between the age of sixteen to sixty, male?” Now I was twelve, my brother was fifteen, my grandfather lived with us, was sixty-four, and my father was thirty-eight. My father came out of the back and says “Here I am.””
