Lower Silesia (Niederschlesien in German) was a province of the Free State of Prussia from 1919 to 1945. Between 1938 and 1941 it was united with Upper Silesia as the Province of Silesia. Silesia had been ceded by the Austrian Monarchy to the Kingdom of Prussia in 1742. The capital of Lower Silesia was Breslau (Wrocław). The province was further divided into two administrative regions (Regierungsbezirke), Breslau and Liegnitz.
