Wikipedia, May 5, 2020 ("The Free State of Oldenburg (German: Freistaat Oldenburg) was a federated state of the Weimar Republic. It was established in 1918 following the abdication of the Grand Duke Frederick Augustus II following the German Revolution. In 1937, it lost the exclave districts of Eutin near the Baltic coast and Birkenfeld in southwestern Germany to Prussia and gained the City of Wilhelmshaven; however, this was a formality, as the Hitler regime had de facto abolished the federal states in 1934 ... After World War II, Oldenburg was merged into the newly founded state of Lower Saxony as the administrative region (Verwaltungsbezirk) of Oldenburg, both of which became a part of Federal Republic of Germany in 1949")
German Wikipedia, May 5, 2020 ("Der Freistaat Oldenburg war ein republikanisch verfasstes Land des Deutschen Reiches während der Weimarer Republik, das als parlamentarische Demokratie regiert wurde. Er war der Nachfolgestaat des Grossherzogtums Oldenburg ... Der Freistaat Oldenburg wurde 1933/1934 gleichgeschaltet und ging zum 1. November 1946 im Land Niedersachsen auf")
