I am scheduled to do a course on post-1939 Europe next semester. My students have expressed a desire to continue reading novels as a source of history. For example, this semester I used Fallada's "What Now, Little Man?" which they enjoyed very much.

1) Can anyone recommend a good novel for post-1939 Germany? Could recommendations please include some description of the novel including the date of publication to help me in my decision?

2) Are there any good films I could show?
