UKRAINE

 

1922

 

This colorful map comes from the Meyers Kleiner HandAtlas published by the Bibliographisches Institut in Leipzig in 1922. It shows Ukraine shortly after the end of World War I.

 Ukrainians entered World War I on the side of both the Central Powers, under Austria, and the Triple Entente, under Russia. 3.5 million Ukrainians fought with the Imperial Russian Army, while 250,000 fought for the Austro-Hungarian Army.  

World War I brought about the end of the Russian and Austro-Hungarian empires.

According to the Peace of Riga concluded between the Soviets and Poland, western Ukraine was officially incorporated into Poland, which in turn recognized the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in March 1919. With establishment of the Soviet power in Ukraine, the country lost half of its territory: the eastern Galicia was given to Poland, Pripyat marshes region – to Belarus, half of Sloboda Ukraine and northern fringes of Severia were passed to Russia, while on the left bank of Dniester River was created Moldavian autonomy. Eventually, Ukraine became a founding member of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics or the Soviet Union in December 1922.

 

This map is a great resource for genealogical or historical research.   The 11x 14 inch (or slightly larger) map is printed  on 80 pound archival paper and protected by our  archival quality polypropylene  sleeve.    An insert on the back of the map provides brief information about the map and a brief history of the area represented on the map.  

 

 

This map is reprinted from an original map which we own.
