Generations in an age of violence
This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the experiences of East Germans with Nazi and communist dictatorship. It suggests that violence in colonial Germany may have played some role in the character of atrocities in the Great War but it did not cause the continuation of any supposed ‘traditions of violence’. It also discusses the similarities between the two dictatorships and the ways in which people are both inherently shaped by and also shape history; and the ways in which their ever changing perceptions of the past and the present intersect with structures of power and changing circumstances.
