Summary 'Postcolonial Germany' traces the evolution of the collective memory of German colonialism, stretching from the loss of the colonies across the eras of national socialism, national division, and the Cold War to the present day. It shows to what extent this memory was intimately bound to objects of material culture in the former colonial metropole, such as tropical fruit sold atcolonial balls, state gifts handed to the former colonies at independence, and ethnological items kept as family heirlooms
