6. Jews in Germany 1906

This small map from 1906 shows the two large regions in the German Reich where the Jews were well represented: the provinces of West Prussia, Posen and the right bank of the Oder in Silesia, and a wide tract of land running from Eastern Westphalia, through Hesse-Nassau, the Grand Duchy of Hesse, the Palatinate and Baden to Alsace-Lorraine. Outside these regions it was the large cities, in particular Berlin and Hamburg, which had a relatively high percentage of Jews. The influx into Berlin and its surroundings from 1871 onwards was mainly at the expense of the Jewish population in the eastern provinces of Prussia.
