How well did Germany do as far as reconciling their differences after World War 2?

Some supported the Nazis, others didn't. Have they succeeded in putting their differences aside? How long did it take? Is this process of reconciliation still ongoing, 75 years later?

Update:

I realize my question is a subject for an entire book, but I was hoping for a few insights.

    Considering their country was in ruins at the end, 

    they saw the error of their ways rather quickly.

    Not so good for those in the GDR under the Soviets.

    The insights you need are the environment and circumstances of the aftermath.  

    Germany was divided into 4 sections immediately with an different Ally country looking after security of their section.  Later 3 sections became West Germany, Democratic.  And the 4th Section East Germany, that stayed under USSR control.

    The world powers quickly went into the Cold war, and East and West Germany was ground zero.  The border between East and West Europe.  They were quickly accepted as new allies.    

    A lot of Nazi's were snapped up, by either side.  Take the USA, Nazi's considered assets were allowed into the USA and work for the CIA and NASA.
