German Story Fact-Checking [ANSWERED]

Hi guys,
Awhile back I was trying to draft a story with a character whose mother grew up in what would have been West Germany in the 1950s-1980s. I’ve now come up with a rough draft incorporating some of that information, but I would like some specific facts checked to make sure they measure up correctly and to ensure I didn’t misrepresent anything or overlook stuff.

Edit: I think I have a good handle on what I should focus on now, thanks!
