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.[1] It is noted for its generally anti-Polish tone.

It was made at the Terra Studios in Berlin in late 1926. The film's sets were designed by the art director Alfred Junge.

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.
