Abstract

The figure of the anti-aircraft rifle is often used in the historically to bring the specifics of the end of war 1944/45 into a gripping picture: In their last, meaningless operations women were forced to stand by their civil-military hermetic status for the totalization of the war and represent the defeat. The memories of the helpers show the end of the war as an extraordinary condition. As the helpers persist and unmask this end-time experience, their memories of operations and odyssey return home at the same time from the end of the war back into history.
