Summary When the Allies took control of Germany in 1945, occupiers and occupied were forced to coexist while the world was remade. This new four part documentary examines the profound effect this had on the shape of present day Germany, and the rest of the world. This is the story of the years between the end of World War II and the founding of the two German states. 1945 to 1949 proved to be a decisive period for both Germany and the occupying forces. It was a period of reciprocal impressions and experience for both occupiers and occupied and a period that still fundamentally shapes personal fates, families, the economy, the arts and geopolitics. Combining carefully selected eyewitness accounts from occupiers and occupied alike, Living with the Enemy creates a new, exciting and differentiated view of the time and shows that these years not only helped shape present-day Germany, but also had a profound effect on the rest of the world. This period was the beginning of the Cold War. It would influence global politics for decades to come. A new generation of historians with new findings, archives only now accessible, and the willingness of those involved to engage in an open dialogue make a new and remarkable in-depth view of these historical events.
