This comprehensive illustrated book shows all aspects of everyday life in Austria, from the elimination of bomb damage in 1945 to the State Treaty of 1955. It documents the great changes in the lives of people, their working world and their culture: the years of starvation and the first prosperity, the rubble and the reconstruction, living with the Allies in a divided country, the Marshall Plan in the West and the USIA factories in the East, the fear at the border and the pleasure of the summer resort, the young wild ones and the old people. The Young Republic brings together the best of the collection of the National Library Picture Archives: over 350 photographs from the US Information Services image reporters and famous Austria photographers such as Otto Cory, Erich Lessing, Lothar Rübelt and Harry Weber. Text in German.
