Germany in 1968 was highly politicised, and the general tendency was leftward (a contrast to the present day). A conservative young Englishman goes there to absorb the language and culture, and almost by accident finishes up looking after the most wretched people in the country: stateless victims of Hitler who have committed crimes in Germany after the War and cannot return to their eastern European countries. Mark, the Englishman, also meets attractive women who play a big role in his changing views on life. But there are dangers lurking and threatening him.
Read about it in “Winter 1968”.
