May I suggest a brand-spanking-new work by my colleague, Susan Linville.
The title is FILM, FASCISM, AND FEMINISM. Or is it Fascism, Film, and
Feminism? These alliterative titles can be confusing. She surveys the
literature on the topic of postwar German film and autobiography, so no
doubt the bibliography and notes section could lead you to further reading
on the subject. She deals very specifically with the topic of motherhood
and post-war blame.
It was just released--this month, I believe--from University of Texas
press. It's so fresh that I have not yet seen the book, only the pre-print
cover on display in our English Dept. office (which explains why I am
having trouble remembering the title). But Susan tells me she saw it on a
Barnes and Noble shelf, so it is in distribution.
Good luck with your search.
