This chapter examines the experiences of the members of the 1929er generation in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) during the transition from Nazism to communism. It discusses the commitment of the 1929ers to new regimes and ideologies and the influence of the emerging Cold War tensions and the Soviet Union's intervention in domestic affairs on the 1929ers' remembrance of their past. It also describes the 1929ers' war experiences in which they painted shocked experiences of violence and record a widespread sense of ‘betrayal’.

Keywords:   1929ers, Nazism, communism, GDR, Cold War, Soviet Union, new regimes, new ideologies, war experiences
