Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The records relate to civilian relief efforts, economic conditions, housing, and denazification in Austria after World War II, including minutes, reports, memoranda, statistics, laws, and bulletins.
In 1938 the First Austrian Republic became part of Nazi Germany through an enforced annexation, the Anschluss. The Moscow Declaration of 1943 declared the Anschluss null and void restoring an independent Austrian state, one of aims of the Allies. Karl Renner formed a Provisional Government in late April 1945 and separated Austria from Germany by declaration. Following the end of hostilities, the provisional government was quickly recognized.
