Generation War (German: Unsere Mütter, Unsere Väter, lit. "Our Mothers, Our Fathers") is a German World War II TV miniseries in three parts. The series tells the story of five young German friends on their different paths through Nazi Germany and World War II: as Wehrmacht soldiers on the Eastern Front, a war nurse, an aspiring singer, and a Jewish tailor. The narrative spans four years, starting in 1941 Berlin, when the friends meet up for a last time before embarking on their journeys, enthusiastically vowing to meet up again the following Christmas. As the months pass and the war does not end, each must grapple with the dawning horror of their country’s crimes and their own complicity.
