Postcard - Volksabstimmung and Plesbecite 1920-1923


Recommended Posts

According to the Treaty of Versailles, between 1920 and 1923 many border regions of both Austria and Germany, with a mixed population, were granted a plespecite to define about the nationality of its inhabitants. In some regions this caused reasons for locals to take up arms against the seperatists, but also for Freecorps to intervene. Both sides issued postcards and paper money to stress their point.

This postcard was sold to support the Germans who wanted Upper Silesia to remain German.
