ABSTRACT
This article introduces a cognitive approach to the analysis of post-war German film. In a close reading of Helmut Kautner's In jenen Tagen (1947) it suggests that such an approach helps review the relationship between the audience and rubble film in a way that avoids the label of 'escapism'. It demonstrates that the film provides several identificatory access points which engage the viewer with different perspectives and thereby revises the narratability of the past. The film thus provides a form of dealing with the past which goes beyond the simple and appeasing message of Menschlichkeit.
