This chapter examines the experiences of Germans under communist dictatorship in the German Democratic Republic (GRD). It discusses the question on how to deal with Nazism, the German communists' state monopoly of violence, and the idealism and issues of importance to the concentration camp (KZ) generation, the founding generation of the GRD. It also considers the permanence of division and the remilitarization of the two German states within opposing Cold War blocs and new life chances for the 1929ers.
