CBG Mag 1.03 | Das Leben der Trümmerfrauen
Following the events of World War 2, the monumental task of clearing and reconstructing towns and cities fell to the Trümmerfrauen, literally "rubble women". In this episode of the Coffee Break German Magazine we'll look at this fascinating period of German history. In the other segments of the show, Andrea answers listener Maddie's question about compound words, and Olivera introduces an interesting idiomatic expression in the Sahnehäubchen.
In each episode of this 10-lesson season for intermediate learners you can build your vocabulary, increase your understanding of grammar and learn to use the German language in a more natural way. This series follows on from Seasons 1 and 2 of Coffee Break German.
