Discussion and Reading "Children of the liberation – The perspectives of black Germans of the postwar generation"; NARA, College Park, MD

Kinder der Befreiung
Perspektiven Schwarzer Deutscher der Nachkriegsgeneration

Discussion and Reading as Part of the New German Stories Series

The contribution of black soldiers in the liberation of Germany from fascism in World War II is an almost forgotten part of German history and American-German relations. The biographies and voices of black Germans of the post-war generation that are united in the Kinder der Befreiung.Perspektiven Schwarzer Deutscher der Nachkriegsgeneration (Children of the liberation – The perspectives of black Germans of the postwar generation) volume give this marginalized history visibility and create alternatives to the dominant narratives.
