Aftermath or Burning Border (German: Brennende Grenze) is a 1927 German silent film directed by Erich Waschneck and starring Jenny Hasselqvist, Hubert von Meyerinck and Fritz Alberti. It is noted for its generally anti-Polish tone.
The film is set along the disputed German-Polish borderland after the First World War where clashes between the two sides threaten to lead to bloodshed. The estate of a young widow is threatened when a local Polish commissioner leads his forces to occupy it.
