TV Drama Reopens Debate Over Germans’ Holocaust Guilt

With the wartime generation rapidly disappearing, a television drama about five young Germans in World War II has revived debate in Germany about the role ordinary men and women played in the Nazis’ murderous campaign to conquer Europe.

Millions tuned in last week to watch the three-part series “Our Mothers, Our Fathers,” which follows five young Germans two brothers, a nurse, an aspiring
female singer and a Jewish tailor as they struggle through one of the bloodiest conflicts in history.

Three of the characters, including the Jew, survive disillusioned and physically broken to confront each other and their own demons in the final episode in the ruins of Berlin.
