I'm watching Line of Separation (Tannbach) on PBS. The TV series focuses on one German community at the end of WWII and how it's affected by the U.S. and USSR occupation zone border running through it. There are other story lines centered on ideologies, party affiliations, and land ownership.
I'd like to learn more about Germany during those first few years after the war. Relatives who served during that time are no longer with us, and when they were, they didn't share much. If anyone on the forum has a recommendation for non-fiction books (or even fiction) about this particular time period, I'd appreciate it. I read Salt to the Sea earlier this year, and I thought it was a well written novel.
