Alltag und Politik im französisch besetzten Baden 1945–1949

Frankreich: "Erbfeind" oder "Erneuerer"? Die französische Besatzungspolitik von 1945 bis 1949 galt lange als Hindernis für die deutsch-französische Freundschaft. Aber das Bild muß korrigiert werden. Die französische Politik zeichnete sich bei aller Widersprüchlichkeit durch Eigenständigkeit, Originalität und durch Reformansätze aus, die sich an den Zielen von Demokratisierung, Dezentralisierung und Denazifizierung orientierten. Ein Teil der Reformen versandete jedoch, weil sie den Alltagsbedürfnissen der Bevölkerung nicht entsprachen. Dies zeigen die Autoren am Beispiel des Landes Baden. Eindringlich schildern sie, Alltag und Alltagsnot der Menschen und bringen das in Zusammenhang mit der politischen Geschichte. Die Betroffenen empfanden die französischen Vorhaben trotz überzeugender Konzepte häufig als negativ. Diese Kluft wirkte noch lange nach. Ein Beispiel ist die in der französischen Besatzungszone praktizierte Spielart der Entnazifizierung, die "auto-épuration". Sie sollte nicht schematisch, sondern unter Würdigung der individuellen Umstände die wirklich Schuldigen treffen und zugleich, da die Deutschen selbst entscheidend am Verfahren beteiligt waren, eine gründliche Auseinandersetzung mit der Vergangenheit ermöglichen. Die Art der Verwirklichung ließ die "Selbst-Reinigung" scheitern, doch die Idee kann immer noch eine gewisse Plausibilität beanspruchen. Sie war nicht die einzige Besonderheit Nachkriegsbadens innerhalb der Besatzungszonen. Manches aus der Nachkriegszeit Badens ist vergessen worden, war aber keineswegs bedeutungslos. Dieses Buch hilft mit, es wieder bewußt zu machen.
