The article examines the experiences of laborers in Germany from the World War II to the Cold War. It discusses the downfall of the Nazi regime, which caused damages not only to the labor unions, but also to various political and cultural organizations across the country. It notes that working-class activists who had survived the Nazi regime helped in the restoration of the unions and workers parties in the nation. It also evaluates the similarities and differences between Soviet Union and the U.S. influences on the growth in East and West Germany.
