The discourse of Heimat, meaning homeland or roots, has been a medium of debate on German identity between region and nation for at least a century. This study explores the theme of German identity between locality and nation in literature and film from the late nineteenth century through to the present, locating key novels and films in a wider cultural context of great significance for an understanding of German history.
