Map of Austrian Occupied Poland, 1915-1918
Hello, I am looking for a map that shows the physical boundaries of the two parts of Poland that were occupied and administered by Germany and Austria-Hungary, respectively, between 1915 and 1918.

As many students of the First World War know, following the 1915 "Gorlice-Tarnow" offensive against Imperial Russia, the armies of both Germany and Austria-Hungary occupied vast areas of Polish territory. After the dust of the battles had settled, the Germans installed an administrative body (a "General Government"Wink based in Warsaw under General Hans Beseler. At the same time, the Austro-Hungarian regime created a parallel authority under its own control based in Lublin. This latter was directed by Karl von Kuk, and later by Stanislaw Graf von Szeptycki.

I know that the Austrian "zone" of occupation included Lublin, Kielce, Radom and Chelm, and I assume all territory south of these cities to Austrian Galicia. Does anyone know the actual, physical extent of the Austrian zone of occupation? Where did the Austrian zone end and where did the German zone begin?

How far north along the Bug River did the Austrian zone of 1915-1918 reach? Was the town of Wlodawa inside the German or Austrian zone of occupation? What about Parczew or Brest Litovsk?

Is there a map of these zone on this site?

Any maps or other information you can provide or direct me to will be appreciated. Thank you!

Can I get some guidance on the projection that WIG cartographers used on the 1 to 100,000 maps?

Hello Marek. I am referring to the Ossada settlements created by Marshal Pilsudski in the Kresy after the 1920 Polish-Soviet war. I am hoping that there exists a map showing the location of these Ossa

"Ossadas" is a very generic name (settlements), likewise "Kresy" which stretch from current Lithuania down to Ukraine. Anything more specific?

Dzień dobry Marek. Czy Archive mają żadnych mapy przedstawiając
e lokalizację Ossadas w staropolskim Kressy (sprzed wojny)? Dziękuję, Julian.
