"Germany has been, in the grips of its history, a divided people. The pivot of Germany's tragedies and its greatest glories has been its geography. All that passes through Europe, east to west, north to south, crosses Germany and has affected its character directly and indirectly." So says Leonard Freed, who spent significant time after the Second World War traveling through the Germanic countryside.

He has captured the multi-faceted identity crisis of a nation searching for itself, one where families have been divided, new immigrants arrive daily on its borders, and people struggle for normality and a sense of belonging after years of political upheaval. "Made in Germany" documents the everyday life of those within the then newly-formed Bundesrepublik, yet it does not define the Germans as a single people. Rather, to be 'made in Germany' is, as Freed puts it, a "misdemeanor", since Germany itself was just created. He portrays the country in exactly this manner: an amalgamation of persons in the same area, searching for a history yet constantly looking to the future.
