2|Before, it has to be noted that in modern, complex societies the collective memory is influenced and changed through media. Media representations never (!) show reality, just media constructions of reality that are influenced by many factors. #LegaciesFWW2019
3|Previous media products (e.g. novels, memoirs, movies) are especially important, because narratives are always part of a bigger network of already existing stories. The Battle of the Somme (1916) was the first popular propaganda film about #WWI in GB. (pic. PD) #LegaciesFWW2019 The picture shows a still from the black-and-white film The Battle of the Somme, first aired in 1916. It is set in France in 1916. An exhausted British soldier is looking directly into the camera and is carrying a seriously wounded comrade on his back. The cameraman is looking from above at the soldier, who is walking in a trench. Other comrades are walking behind him in the extremely narrow trench.
