Photo Gallery: Germany's Hit New WWII Miniseries

'Our Mothers, Our Fathers' Next-Generation WWII Atonement

A miniseries that aired in Germany this month has enthralled viewers with its emotional portrayal of the role that average people played in WWII. Stripped of moral pretension, it also establishes a new, multigenerational milestone in the country's culture of remembrance.
