In spring 2007 German television broadcasted a film titled Die Flucht, which in a fictionalized form tells the story of the flight of the German civilian population from Eastern Prussia in the last phase of the Second World War. Its broadcasting generated a heated discussion in the media and the Internet forums about the film itself but also about the way it shows history. As a matter of course it also concerned other problems related to this historical event: forced expulsions, the Red Army, change of borders, Poles, Russians, etc. The present article attempts to show the major trends within the then ongoing discussions. Of particular importance for the analysis was the website of the ARD television where for quite a long time viewers exchanged opinions about the film and historical memory in Germany.
