Hermann Strathmann was born in Opherdicke, then a small town a short distance to the east of Dortmund. He attended school locally till he was nearly 12, after which he received a Gymnasium (academic school) level education through private tutoring.Between 18 he attended the Royal Prussian district school at Schulpforte (today subsumed into Naumburg).At least one source insists that this was nothing to do with his Nazi Party membership during the war years, nor with any other Nazi organisation.That left open the possibility that the Americans had responded to some malicious denunciation.Membership of political parties (other than the Nazi Party) became illegal and the CSVD dissolved itself in March 1933.Strathmann himself had in 1931 already, in a widely distributed political paper entitled "National Socialist Philosophy?"
