This lecture gives the History of Prussia from the 1500’s to World War I when it was dissolved. It shows all the border changes throughout time. It gives all the present day states of Germany that were included in what was called Prussia as well as the areas of Poland, Czechoslovakia, Lithuania, and Denmark. It is totally a historical lecture. However important because many people do not know what Prussia is. They see Prussia on their ancestor’s documents like the passenger list and think that is the village that their family came from.
