26.5.1911: Constitution for Alsace Lorraine
The German Reichstag (state parliament) passed the state constitution for Alsace Lorraine. Until then, the region had been a “Reich state” under the administrative authority of the German Reich. It therefore became a federal state of the German Reich some 40 years after its annexation. After the First World War, Alsace was returned to France. In 1940, it was annexed by Germany once more forming the Upper Rhine district together with Baden until 1945. Alsatian, a German dialect that is related to the Alemannic and Swabian dialects, is still spoken in rural districts.
