Most of Silesia was conquered by Prussia in 1742, later becoming part of the German Empire, the Weimar Republic and Nazi Germany up to 1945. After World War I the easternmost part of this region was awarded to Poland by the victorious Allies after rebellions by Silesian Polish people and a plebiscite. After the war the bulk of Silesia was transferred to Polish jurisdiction and became part of Poland. The remaining parts of Silesia went to Czechoslovakia after World War I, and are part of the Czech Republic. The part of Silesia west of the Oder-Neisse line remained in Germany.
