    Which Cities Accross Europe Are Former German Cities?

    I am working on a 6th grade project about cities in Europe. I'm nonexperienced on this issue, all I really know is that Kaleningrad (Konigsberg) and Gdanzk (Danzig) are former German cities. What are the others?

    Thanks.

    Which Cities Accross Europe Are Former German Cities?

    Just about any in what is now the north & west of Poland. Szczecin (Stettin), Wroclaw (Breslau) would be the 2 largest. Marianske Lazne (Marienbad) in the Czech Republic, any town in the Sudentenland. Prague & Brno (Brunn) where both primarily German cities until the 19th centuries, with a significant German populace until the post WWII expulsion, even though they were outside the Sudentenland. Certain Hanseatic towns, like Riga, Revel (Tallinn) & Memel were basically German settlements & significant German populations until they were sent to Germany under an agreement between Hitler & Stalin. And the Alsatians towns.

    Posen (Poznan) is another major one in Western Poland. There are also many other cities in Eastern Europe which had major ethnic German/German-speaking populations as well as German-made architecture such as Belitz (Bielsko-Biala), but I'm not sure if they qualify as German cities.

    Hello, it is good to see young people interested in history and geography.


    (Click on the maps to zoom in).




    Map of Germany 1892.




    Alsace-Lorraine, given to France after WWI.




    Posen. The German majority is colored light, while the Polish majority is colored in the orange. Most of it went to Poland after WWI, and the rest was annexed after WWII.




    Pomerania, split down the center with most going to Poland after WWII.




    Silesia. Small parts were annexed by Poland and the Czech Republic after WWI, with the rest being annexed after WWII. Like Posen, the German majority is colored light. Most of the major cities within the "Polish area" had significant numbers of Germans.




    A very detailed map of West and East Prussia, annexed by Poland, Russia, and Lithuania after WWII, with some parts annexed after WWI.




    The territory of Eupen-Malmedy, given to Belgium after WWI. The main cities are Eupen and Malmedy.


    ______
    Here are some cities that are not in the country of Germany, but were settled by Germans and other nations populated by Germans.


    German Settlements in Eastern Europe (1932).


    These are cities that had a German majority (or significant populations), but were not within the borders of Germany.


    Austria-Hungary Ethnicities (1911). Germans are in pink.


    I made posts here, here, here, and here that go into a small bit of detail on the German history of the cities (all of which are on the map above).


    Germans in Romania (1896).




    If you need further information, you can check the Germanic Enclaves & Influences section of the forum.



    I'll take some time and post a list of some of the major cities later.

    Elbląg was formerly the beautiful city of Elbing.

    Kwidzyn is the former Marienwerder. May not seem all that important, but at one time it was.

    Actually, although it doesn't quite fit with your homework, you may still want to have a look at the list here:

    That depends on what you consider a "German City". It could be a number of things. i.e.
    - Cities in Eastern Germany occupied by Russia or Poland.
    - Cities founded by Germans all over Eastern Europe.
    - Cities founded based on German law. i.e. Magdeburger Stadtrecht.
    THere maybe other categories as well.

    Jesse, Can you be polite and tell us more about you and what you hope to achieve further on from this very sad thread.

    Outstanding thanks must be given to the members of Skadi here for their kind contributions of maps and factual historical information to you that actually shows the proof of the intentional historical genocide against Germans throughout all of Europa.

    A brutal fact that continues to be covered up.

    I don't think he is planning on becoming a member, just researching a homework project. Skadi probably popped up on a Google search on the subject.

    Assuming he is American I would guess he is 11 or 12. And though Jesse is a Hebrew/Biblical name most boys with it in the US are Nordish - you know we have a preference for those Old Testament names when it comes to naming our children.
