The PDS remained influential in former eastern Germany, especially at the state and local levels, in articulating east-German issues and addressing social problems. In 2007 the PDS merged with the Labour and Social Justice – The Electoral Alternative (''Arbeit und soziale Gerechtigkeit–Die Wahlalternative, WASG'') to create the new party The Left (The Left (Germany)) (''Die Linke''), which has resulted in a higher acceptance in western states, the party now also being represented in the parliaments of Schleswig-Holstein, Lower Saxony, Bremen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saarland, Hesse and Hamburg.

radio connection

Saxony . Alongside the ''Richtfunkmast'' is a 117 m (384 ft) free-standing steel framework tower, which is dwarfed in comparison. This was built between 1970 and 1973, and had 18 m (66 ft) diameter parabolic antennae to enable radio connection beyond the horizon to Lower Saxony until 1995. Since 2002 mediumwave digital radio transmissions have been tested in Frohnau at 1485 kHz. Since neither the ''Richtfunkmast'' nor the parabolic antenna tower was intended for mediumwave transmissions, an additional 10 m (33 ft) long-wire antenna was installed. There is still the option to build a 380 kV line from Lübeck to another 380 kV substation in Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg or Lower Saxony. The construction of the 380 kV link between Lübeck-Herrenwyk and Schwerin is not progressing due to opposition from ecologists. thumb A wind farm in a mountainous area in Galicia (Spain) Galicia (File:Windpark Galicia.jpg), Spain thumb Wind farm in Lower Saxony (File:Windpark-Wind-Farm.jpg), Germany Commons:Category:Lower Saxony Wikipedia:Lower Saxony Dmoz:Regional Europe Germany States Lower Saxony

This is opposed to Low German dialects (''Plattdeutsch, Niederdeutsch''), which developed on the lowlands and along the flat sea coasts of modern northern Germany (Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Hamburg, etc.). The Bizone included the ''Länder'' Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, Lower Saxony, Bremen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Hesse, Bavaria and Württemberg-Baden – the northern part of the later Baden-Württemberg – but not the states of the French zone, to wit Württemberg-Hohenzollern, Baden, Rheinland-Pfalz or those in the Soviet zone Mecklenburg, Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and Saxony. Neither part of Berlin was part of the Bizone nor any former parts of Germany, such as the Saarland, which was out of joint allied occupational control since February 1946. The Bizone had a population of approximately 39 million people. Subcamps of Neuengamme in alphabetical order.

Old East Frisian and its decline Old East Frisian used to be spoken in East Frisia (''Ostfriesland''), the region between the Dutch river Lauwers and the river Weser, in the German state of Lower Saxony. The area also included two small districts on the east bank of the Weser, the lands of Wursten and Würden. The Old East Frisian language could be divided into two dialect groups: Weser Frisian to the east, and Ems (Ems (river)) Frisian to the west. From 1500 onwards Old East Frisian slowly had to give way to the severe pressure put on it by the surrounding Low German dialects, and nowadays it is all but extinct. Classification The closest relatives of North Frisian are the two other Frisian languages, the Saterland Frisian (Saterland Frisian language) of north-western Lower Saxony, Germany, and the West Frisian language spoken in the northern Netherlands. Together these three form the group of Frisian languages. In 1907 he was promoted to major and assigned to the staff of 11th Army Corps.

Before he could assume this command, however, his orders were changed and he was posted—effective 13 April 1914—to German East Africa, the mainland of present Tanzania.
