Much has been written about the leaders of the Nazi Party which dominated Germany from 1933 to 1945. But what about the lives of ordinary Germans who struggled to survive World War II and rebuild their lives and cities in the post war period? The last five years have seen an intensification of efforts to capture their stories and perspectives as they pass on into history. The survivors of this time period often choose not to remember war-associated events either publicly or sometimes even inside their own families. But there were memories, witnesses and the occasional diary. A Time To Remember attempts to catch some of this past in eight narratives focused on varying locations, time periods and challenges. All are based on real people and real events as recorded by the author in his forty-plus years of close association with Germany and Germans.
