Memoirs of the author, who was classified by the Nazis as a "Mischling" since his father was Catholic and he himself was baptized but his mother was born Jewish. He took part in various Catholic opposition circles and contacted, in his attempts to rescue Jewish relatives, a resistance group, the Solf Circle. Kuehn himself suffered relatively little from Nazi persecution.
