This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume, which is about the collective patterns of experience and individual passages of Germans through the violent eruptions of wars and post-war periods, and through the succeeding dictatorships of Nazism and communism. It analyses the ways major historical events and changing structures of constraint and opportunity influenced their lives and political outlook. It covers the period from the Great War to the period after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
