Summary/Abstract: Based on the statistical analysis of bibliographical data and the methods of content analysis and structuralist narratology, the research sets out to determine the dynamics of publication of the memoirs on the Great War in East Prussia that were published in Germany in the period of 1914–1939 as well as to investigate the tendencies of change in their content. The memoirs on the Great War in East Prussia have neither been studied in terms of content nor the dynamics of publication. Therefore, this study provided an opportunity to not only single out the prevailing storylines relating to the topic of remembrance of the Great War in East Prussia but also to reveal the dynamics of their circulation in German publishing.
