about

In the defeat and occupation of Germany that followed the Second World War, the radio remained a vital part of everyday life for most Germans. Voices in Ruins explores in detail the continuities and discontinuities of everyday broadcasting practice at the occupied radio stations. It shows the multiple ways in which the radio stations, in interaction with their listeners, helped to fundamentally shape visions of what would become the Federal Republic, as well as memories of a German past.
ALEXANDER BADENDOCH is Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Technical University of Eindhoven.
