The were the last of Europe’s heathens: for centuries the Baltic Prussians, who settled the former East Prussian territory, defended their religion and culture until it had to give way to the militarily superior Teutonic Order. They were vanquished but the victors adopted their name, going down in history as the Prussians – a unique historical case. The filmmaker and bestselling writer Gisela Graichen and the journalist and non-fiction author Matthias Gretzschel tell the fascinating but near forgotten story of the Baltic Prussians.
