Brandenburg Provincial Association

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Brandenburg Provincial Association (since 1939: Provincial Association of the Mark Brandenburg Province ) was a higher municipal association that existed from 1876 to 1945 in the Prussian province of Brandenburg .


In 1881 Berlin left the Brandenburg Provincial Association .

State Director (Brandenburg)

From 1875 the Brandenburg provincial parliament elected a state director as head of the stronger provincial self-government. After the abolition of the monarchy in Prussia, this office was renamed Landeshauptmann, but not in Brandenburg. The provincial parliament decided to keep the traditional title. In the course of the standardization of official designations by the Nazi regime , this Brandenburg particularism was leveled out in 1937 and the designation state governor was introduced here as well. State director of the Brandenburg Provincial Association were:

1876–1896: Albert Erdmann Karl Gerhard von Levetzow
1896–1912: Otto von Manteuffel
1912–1930: Joachim von Winterfeldt-Menkin
1930–1933: Hugo Swart
1933–1944: Dietloff von Arnim (1876–1945)
1944–1946: vacancy?


The Brandenburg Provincial Association had its seat in Berlin-Charlottenburg until 1939 , then in Potsdam until 1945.
