After Hitler: Recivilizing Germans, 1945-1995

Konrad H. Jarausch


This book deals with the transformation of Germany after the Second World War and the Holocaust into a Western, democratic, and therefore civilized country. It proceeds in three stages, beginning with the Allied post-war policies of demilitarization, denazification, and decartelization. In the second part, it concentrates on the Westernization, inner democratization and generational rebellion of the 1960s, concluding with a section on the repudiation of Communism, the return to normalcy, and the issue of immigration during the 1990s.

Keywords: Germany, Second World War, Holocaust, democratic, civilized, demilitarization, denazification, decartelization, Westernization, generational rebellion
