Traffic Control in Krakow, Poland During the Nazi Occupation in 1941

Under the terms of two decrees by Hitler (8 October and 12 October 1939), large areas of western Poland were annexed to Germany. These included all the territories which Germany had lost under the 1919 Treaty of Versailles, such as the Polish Corridor, West Prussia and Upper Silesia, but also a large area of indisputably Polish territory east of these territories, including the city of Łódź.

Some Polish institutions, including the police, were preserved in the General Government. Political activity was prohibited and only basic Polish education was allowed.
