The province was occupied by American troops after the conquest of Magdeburg in April 1945 during World War II. After the territory was transferred from American to Soviet control, it was merged with Halle-Merseburg and Anhalt to recreate the Province of Saxony, later renamed the Province of Saxony-Anhalt and ultimately the Federal State of Saxony-Anhalt.
