This handout (Germany from 1945-present – A Chronology) is meant to help students organize their knowledge about the history of Germany (and East Germany) since 1945. Since we do not approach topics of German culture from a solely historical perspective, dates, important events, people in power, and a sense of a more general timeline can sometimes get lost as we dig into our texts. This is one way to organize this and any additional information you learn about postwar Germany.
