A referendum on territorial status was held in the Saar on 13 January 1935. Since World War I the territory had been separate from Germany and administered by France. Voters were asked whether the Saar should remain under the administration, return to Germany or become part of France. Over 90% voted in favour of reuniting with Germany, which was celebrated by the Nazi government. The annexation to the Reich was completed on 1 March and Saarland became part of Germany again.
