What did Germany's notorious 1968 Generation actually achieve?
In the late 1960’s, protest movements sprang up around the globe. It was a heady time of hippies and sit-ins, anti-Vietnam protests and demonstrations against authoritarian regimes.
The nightly news often carried pictures of long-haired students clashing with riot police on the streets. This protest wave hit Germany as well, as young people, mostly university students, took to the streets to demand change. This so-called 1968 Generation has almost become almost legend in Germany--although whether they caused more harm or more good is a matter for debate.
