HistorySince the reunification of Germany in 1990 Saxony-Anhalt is one of the five "new states". The state first emerged in its present form between 1947 and 1952. In the aftermath of the Second World War, and as part of the restructuring of the Soviet zone of occupation, it was created as one of five states, and comprised the former Prussian province of Saxony, the state of Anhalt, and a few smaller territories which had previously belonged to Brunswick and Thuringia.
