"I came to high school in the city against the will of my mother," says the text next to a 1971 group photo of Herta in Hermannstadt (Nagyszeben, Sibiu).
Furthermore, the German vein is regrettably perpetuated in the toponymy: Thorn is mentioned (99, 107), without any indication that this is the Polish town of Torun; the German minority living in Hermannstadt (163) was really in the Romanian Sibiu (or Hungarian Nagyszeben).
There is no mention of the Kapellenbibliothek Nagyszeben as the source of the Muzeul Brukenthal collection in Sibiu, Romania (785).
