This chapter examines the history of the German generations after the war in 1945. It analyses how the Nazi dictatorship influenced the later communist regime in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) and the success of the Federal Republic of Germany in overcoming its dictatorial past. It also discusses the adults' interpretation of their past in the two new German states, the patterns of generation formation among those younger than the concentration camp generation and the role of the 1929ers in new generation formation in the GDR.

Keywords:   German generations, GDR, Federal Republic of Germany, concentration camp generation, 1929ers
