New Third Reich TV Drama

This looks special.

From the most impressive trailers I can understand the interest in the new German TV drama "Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter" (Our Mothers, Our Fathers) that is right now stirring up German interest in WWII and the Third Reich.

  1. The series is really worth seeing. It shows war in a German drama in a way it has never been shown before: as brutal, violent and horrifying. The most important thing about the series is, however, that it has ignited a discussion in Germany. Ordinary German people changed (mostly for the worse) because of the war - but against their own will. Instead of just feeling guilty, Germans are starting to understand and grieve: no matter how guilty the nazis are, the ordinary Germans still suffered at least as much as other people struck by the World War II - or even more.
