Abstract

Svenja Goltermann focuses on a blind spot in German contemporary history. She examines the question of what the experiences of the Second World War meant to German soldiers and their families after the war. From dealing with psychological suffering to clarifying the pension claims of the war victims - the challenges for those affected, relatives, medicine and politics were immense. This book is an equally important as well as a continuing contribution to the difficult debate about the self-understanding of the Germans as perpetrators and victims in the Second World War.
