The first semester after conclusion of the war showed it: destroyed universities, the lack of textbooks and the general shortage of time deeply engage in student life. Already the enrolment, admission to the University, is linked to several new conditions today. The abundance of candidates forces to these limitations. After shooting, the students first help reconstruction of often heavily destroyed universities. The duration of this work lies between a quarter and half a year. The students also practical work.
Now begins the academic life of today. The housing problem is it naturally at the heart.
Who is lucky, a room receives mediated by student apartment detection. When feeding, the old philosophical Word applies: omnia mea mecum postage - in English: I have everything that I own with me. And looks like the romance of student life: man lives alone, in pairs or threes on a pad. It manages itself as best it can and stuffs to a hole after another.
Some students have been family. The study is doubly difficult for them.
In a former air-raid shelter in Bonn, apartments were set up for students. The students have glued the bald bunker walls with scientific data and images. Here, live and learn, here they build on the building of science and practical life.
Books are the backbone of the knowledge. Many university libraries have suffered heavy casualties in the war. Now, the rescued stocks are spotted and classified.
And now a days in the University. The study is characterized by the overcrowding of classrooms and institutes. The rush to all faculties is enormous. It applies to many lost years by intense learning again to catch up. Last summer, over 73,000 students studied at the 22 German universities.

03. Germany Today:
How does the student live today? Damaged universities, shortage of books and educational material, and lack of food and lodging plan a big part in the present-day student's life. The multitude of people who want to study forces limitations in the study-courses. After admission the students first help in reconstructing their university. This work lasts about a quarter to half a year. The girl students, too, perform practical work. Now the modern student's life begins. Housing questions, of course, are of top importance.
Lucky ones get a room through the Student Housing Office. Going to their new homes the old philosophic word can be said: omnia mea mecum porto. And this is the romance of student's life: they live singly, double or three together in a room. They help themselves as well as they can. Some students already have families and they have a harder time studying.
A former air-raid shelter in Bonn was turned into a boarding house for students.
They have decorated the bare walls of their rooms with scientific designs and data. Here they live and learn.
Books are the back-bone of the knowledge. Many universities have lost their libraries. Here, some rescued stocks are put in order again. And here we show a day at University. The lecture rooms are overcrowded. Many students have to study fast to make up for lost years. Last summer 73.000 students attended 22 German high schools. Munich is the largest university in Germany with 9.000 students, second is Hamburg; then follow Göttingen, Berlin, Frankfurt, Erlangen and Mainz. It was very hard to get the necessary scientific apparatus and material. Lunch. The canteen feeds the students as in golden times. General Students Committees were established to create a self-administrating body. By free elections and voting problems are solved. Some universities already print newspapers. The student life of today serves the gentle purpose of all science: research and keeping alive immortal knowledge.
04. Olympic Training on the Zugspitze
