The four sectors of Allied occupation in Berlin

The Allied powers who defeated Nazi Germany in World War II divided the country west of the Oder-Neisse line into four occupation zones for administrative purposes during the period 1945-1949. In the closing weeks of fighting in Europe the American forces had actually pushed beyond the previously agreed upon occupation zone boundaries, sometimes by as much as 200 miles. The line of contact between Soviet and American forces at the end of hostilities was temporary. After about two months of holding certain areas meant to be in the Soviet zone, the American forces withdrew in July 1945. Some have speculated that this was a crucial move that helped induce the Soviets in allowing American and British forces into their predesignated areas in Berlin, which was done at roughly the same time (July 1945), though the need for intelligence gathering (see Operation Paperclip) may have been a factor, as well.

Initially, despite being one of the Allied powers, the French were not to be granted an occupation zone due to concerns over the great historical animosity between France and Germany, as well as the smaller wartime role played by the French within the alliance. Eventually, however, both the British and the Americans agreed to yield a small portion of their respective zones to the French. For this reason, the French zone, unlike those of the other three powers, consisted of two non-contiguous areas and was made up of the present-day state of Rheinland-Pfalz and the southern areas of Baden-Württemberg. The headquarters of the French military government was in Baden-Baden. Rhineland-Palatinate (German Rheinland-Pfalz) is one of 16 Bundesländer of Germany. ...

An area within the French zone previously known as the Saargebiet, which had been created under a League of Nations mandate following World War I, was re-established in 1945 as the Saar protectorate.

Governance and the emergence of two Germanys

The original Allied plan to govern Germany as a single unit through the Allied Control Council broke down in 1946-1947 due to growing Cold War tensions between the West and the Soviet Union, and was never fully implemented. In practise each of the four occupying powers wielded government authority in its own zone and carried out different policies toward the population, local and state governments there. A uniform administration of the western zones evolved, known first as the Bizone (the American and British zones) and later the Trizone (after inclusion of the French zone). The complete breakdown of east-west allied cooperation and joint administration in Germany became clear with the Soviet imposition of the Berlin Blockade enforced from June 1948 to May 1949. The three western zones were merged to form the Federal Republic of Germany in May 1949, and the Soviets followed suit in October with the establishment of the German Democratic Republic.

In the west, the occupation officially continued until 1955, but after the creation of the Federal Republic the military governors were replaced by civilian high commissioners, whose position was somewhere between that of a governor and of an ambassador. When the Federal Republic was recognized as a fully sovereign state in 1955, the occupation officially ended, the western occupation zones ceased to exist, and the high commissioners were replaced by normal ambassadors. A 1956 plebiscite ended the French administration of the Saar protectorate within the former French occupation zone and it joined the Federal Republic as the state of Saarland on January 1, 1957. 1955 (MCMLV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... 1955 (MCMLV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...


The city of Berlin, however, was not part of either state and continued to be under Allied occupation until 1990.

In 1938 the nation of Austria had become part of Germany through a union known as the Anschluss. Following the war it re-gained its status as an independent country separate from Germany and was itself divided into four Allied occupation zones. Like Germany, Austria also regained its sovereignty in 1955 with the end of the occupation there. German troops march into Austria on 12 March 1938. ...
