Film: Social & Cultural Change

Film series: Power and authority in Germany, 1871-1991

By Professor Matthew Stibbe, published 27th April 2023

How did a new Germany rebuild itself from the legacy of the Second World War both physically, emotionally and culturally? Professor Stibbe explores the silences of many households and how that influenced the student rebellion of the late 1960s. He also puts into perspective the cultural impact that the war generation had when they started to open up about what they had seen and been a part of during the Second World War. He goes on to examine how a new Germany changed its role again when it took part in NATO bombings over Serbia in the 1990s.
