Generation War consists of three 90 minute parts: A Different Time (Eine andere Zeit), A Different War (Ein anderer Krieg), and A Different Country (Ein anderes Land).
The series tells the story of five German friends aged around 20. All of them try to find their different paths through Nazi Germany and World War II where they work as Wehrmacht soldiers on the Eastern Front, war nurse, aspiring singer, and Jewish tailor. The narrative spans over five years and starts in 1941 in Berlin. When the friends meet up for a last time before embarking on their different journeys, they enthusiastically vow to meet up again the following Christmas. The story’s conclusion is set in a time shortly after the end of the war in 1945.
