This c 1946 post-WWII map shows the British, American, French and Russian occupation zones in Germany as well as German territories in Poland. A thick line depicts the extent of Germany in 1937, a thinner one the occupation areas after the end of the war in 1945. The ‘Besatzungszonene’ ceased to exist after the Reunification in 1990.

The map was separately published by the Military Government, die ‘Militär-Regierung’. A fascinating and important piece of European history!
