In German history “year zero” or “zero hour” (
Stunde Null
) refers to Germany in 1945.
They are controversial concepts because they imply that in 1945 Germans could forget
everything that happened before 1945 (i.e., the Nazi era and the Holocaust) and begin
everything anew. Our presentation will interrogate the concept of
Stunde Null
analyzing visual representations of Germany in 1945.
