The contract of Saint-Germain.
Successor States, states on the territory of the dissolved Austro-Hungarian monarchy, that either emerged as independent countries after its dissolution (Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary) or countries considerably enlarged by the addition of former Austro-Hungarian territories (Rumania, Poland, Yugoslavia). These countries fell under German predominance from 1938 (Protectorates of Bohemia and Moravia, independent Slovakia, Yugoslavia, independent Croatia, Hungary enlarged at the expense of Rumania and Slovakia). All the countries except for Austria became communist countries after 1945, after 1989 another radical change took place: Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina declared themselves independent from Yugoslavia, former parts of the USSR were ceded by Russia to the Ukraine, Czechoslovakia divided into the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
