Please suggest books, ideally fiction, about everyday life of common people in wartime Nazi Germany, or other people who ended up on the wrong side of history.

I am not looking for books primarily about military action or the lives of tragically affected populations. I am also not looking for books about characters who, for reasons of narrative convenience, hold the correct opinions and sympathies. I'm curious how authors have handled the subject of banal people who minded their own business until one day they woke up in Nazi Germany or some other actively reprehensible regime. One caveat: I am not looking for books about life in the USSR. Thanks.
