"The Dark Room" tells three stories: that of Helmut a young photographer in the 1930s; Lore a 12-year-old girl at the end of the war; and Micha, a young school teacher, half a century later. Between them, the reader traces the legacy of the Nazi period on the lives of ordinary Germans.
Tells the stories of three ordinary twentieth-century Germans; Helmut, a young photographer in Berlin in the '30s who uses his craft to express his patriotic fervour; Lore, a twelve year old girl who in 1945 guides her young siblings across Germany; and Micha, a teacher obsessed with his grandfather's role in the war.
