Reflects perfectly the life in Germany by the end of the 19th century until mid 20th century
Löwengrube tells the story of the Grandauer Family from the end of the 19th century until the fifties of the last century.

If you watch this series, you learn more about German history of the last century than any history-book can tell you. I am watching this series for the third time. For sure it will not be the last time...
