Vicco von Bülow,
The series (11 episodes) tells the story of the village Schabbach, on the Hunsrueck in Germany through the years 1919-1982. Central person is Maria, who we see growing from a 17 year old girl to an old woman, and her family. The family, like the rest of the German people live through the crises after WW-I, the rise and fall of Nazism and WW-II, and the rebuilding and the following prosperity of the village (as a symbol for the whole country) after WW II.

In the narration at the beginning of "Das Fest der Lebenden und der Toten" we are told that Pauline died in 1979. However on the family tree the date is listed as 1975. This is confirmed when Hermann visits the grave and the date on the tombstone is 1975. See more »
Excellent historical/drama series. The depiction of how the residents of a small German village become embroiled in the rise of Nazism is fascinating. Long overdue for re-showing on British television, particularly in view of new UK history channel available on freeview. Last shown by BBC with subtitles several years ago. Sadly now only available on video from Germany (no english subtitles obviously.)
