Generalgouvernement

WWII Puppets & Occupations

Following the German conquest of Poland, the Generalgouvernement was formed to govern that portion of Poland which was to be incorporated into Greater Germany.

The Generalgouvernement was not governed in the same manner as most occupied territories, because the region was intended to be a permanent part of Germany rather than a temporary occupation. The government was not officially run as a puppet state, though the policies of the Generalgouvernement mirrored those of Hitler’s government, and much of the Final Solution was implemented by the Generalgouvernement.

The Generalgouvernement lasted until 1944, when the Russian advance through Poland led to its fall.
