Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The records relate to demilitarization, denazification, democratization, and reconstruction of Germany after World War II. Includes minutes, reports, memoranda, laws, proclamations, press releases, agenda, and bulletins.
The Allied powers that defeated Nazi Germany in World War II divided the country into three zones of occupation: American, British, and Soviet. Each zone was ruled by the Commander-in-Chief of the respective occupational forces. The French zone was added in December 1946. Matters that affected Germany as a whole, however, would have to be decided jointly by all three Commanders-in-Chief, who for this purpose formed a single organ of control called the Control Council.
