1945 to 1949 proved to be a decisive period for both Germany and the occupying forces - this is the story of the years between the end of WWII and the founding of the two German states. 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. A Co-Production by ARD, MDR, WDR and LOOKS Film & TV in association with HISTOIRE 2008
