Die zweite Heimat - Chronik einer Jugend / The Second Homeland: Chronicle of a Youth / Heimat 2: Chronicle of a Generation (1992) 6 x DVD9 + DVD5
Heimat 2: Chronicle Of A Generation covers the years 1960 to 1970, and follows one of the younger generation, Hermann (Henry Arnold), who travels to Munich to study music and composition at the Conservatory. At 16, he swore never to love again after his affair with a woman 12 years his senior was discovered. But in Munich he becomes smitten with Clarissa Lichtblau (Salome Kammer), a cellist. On his first day at the Conservatory, Hermann meets many of the characters that will make up the main cast of this complicated series. Some are fellow musicians or composers, but there are also filmmakers, and later, writers and actors.
Nazism, war, and the Holocaust are things from which this younger generation of Germans cannot escape. Initially they seem disgusted or disinterested in the Nazis, but history, particularly on the personal level, catches up with them.
Each of the 13 episodes focuses on a different character in the group, while the story of Hermann and the others continues to thread through. The series is a complicated tapestry of personal stories, expertly woven together.
