In approaching German literature and film from a transgenerational perspective, Fuchs considerably enriches our understanding.' Bill Niven, Professor of Contemporary German Studies, Nottingham Trent University, UK
'Offers perspectives on some of the most talked-about questions in German Studies today: transgenerational dialogue, postmemory, German wartime suffering, trauma, and the search for a viable German tradition. It is energetically written and will inspire colleagues and students alike.' Karen Leeder (New College Oxford) in Modern Language Review
'Anne Fuchs exemplifies German Studies ... at its best and is a welcome addition to the expansive field of cultural memory. This book contributes significantly to our understanding of the most recent cultural responses to Germany's Nazi past and the continuous shaping of contemporary German national identities."
