The occupation of Germany began after the defeat of the Nazis in World War II, when the country was divided between the three victorious powers and France. The Allied powers divided the German territory west of the Oder-Neisse line into four zones of occupation, taking into account the borders of the Reich in 1937. The territories east of this line were divided between Poland and the Soviet Union.
The city of Berlin was jointly occupied by the Allied powers and subdivided into four sectors, which resulted in the existence of West Berlin and East Berlin, the latter eventually becoming the capital of the German Democratic Republic.
This set of 9 stamps was issued in 1945.
After the wartime restrictions and after the surrender, on May 8, 1945, the Allied postal service was reestablished.
