A 1950s Place for Us

(p.83) 2 Generation
Berlin Replayed

Brigitta B. Wagner

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter explores the unique urban and cinematic geographies of 1950s Berlin, which was politically divided but not yet bisected by the Wall. Focusing on the Berlin teen films of Easterner Gerhard Klein and Austrian Georg Tressler, this section suggests cinematic strategies for resisting officially imposed East-West geographies as well as the postwall utility of reviving these memories.

Keywords:   1950s Berlin, Cinematic geography, Urban geography, Berlin Wall, East Berlin, Gerhard Klein, Georg Tressler, Memory
