Die Früchte des Nichts

Ferdinand Brückner wrote Die Früchte des Nichts in 1951, he was relating the story of teenagers looking for their place after the World War they always knew. Back to a calm world, the parents try to pass over the last years of horror and hope to find their peaceful life back. When the teenagers run away from the city, who are they going to find their place in the world in the middle of this nothingless ? How is this story still contemporary and dealing with all the reconstructions after a devastating event ?
