As a political unit, the Saarland emerged as & ldquo; Saar area & ldquo; in 1920 as a result of the Treaty of Versailles. It was spun off from the German Reich and was under the mandate of the V & ouml; lkerbund for 15 years.
The Saar area was smaller than the later Saarland, as the northern border established at that time was more southerly than the current one. In 1935 the Saar area was reintegrated into the then National Socialist German Reich. The treaty provided for a referendum in which around 90% approved this change.
The Saarland is a country in the south-west of the Federal Republic of Germany. It borders in the north and east on the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, in the south on the French D & eacute; partement Moselle in the Lorraine region
The Saarland is the smallest in terms of area and the second smallest in terms of population in the Federal Republic of Germany.
