Merger of Prussian Provinces Upper and Lower Silesia

Post by JoeW » 09 Aug 2018 23:04

Would anyone know the exact date of the merger of the Prussian Provinces Upper and Lowr Silesia into Province Silesia. It was sometime in late summer 1938. Perhaps August 1? With that merger, SA Gruppen Oberschlesien and Niederschlesien became SA Gruppe Schlesien.
Thank you.

There was no exact date, it was a process which started in December 1937 and was completed by November 1938.
Most of the legal regulations had an effect from 1st of April 1938, although some were not published until October 1938 !
I’m reading a book about anti-gravity. It’s impossible to put down.

the Provinz Oberschlesien and the Provinz Niederschlesien were unified into Provinz Schlesien by a law from 21.03.1938 with effect on 1.4.1938 (Source : Preussisches Staatshandbuch für das Jahr 1939 page 315)
