Prussian Posen
The Province of Posen (German: Provinz Posen, Polish: Prowincja Poznańska) was a province of Prussia from 1848 and as such part of the German Empire from 1871 until 1918. The area, roughly corresponding to the historic region of Greater Poland annexed during the 18th century Polish partitions, was about 29,000 km2 (11,000 sq mi). For more than a century, it was part of the Prussian partition, with a brief exception during the Napoleonic Wars.
Incorporated into the Grand Duchy of Posen after the 1815 Congress of Vienna, the territory was administered as a Prussian province upon the Greater Poland Uprising of 1848. In 1919 according to the Treaty of Versailles, Germany had to cede the bulk of the province to the newly established Second Polish Republic.

Jewish Lives: Britain 1750-1950: Samuel Wolfsohn, Posen Province,Prussian-Poland to Sheffield, 1857
A Jewish policeman in Sheffield? With all this responsibility, all this danger, why would anyone want to become a policeman? Had they not, most candidates, who were largely unskilled, would have faced a lifetime of drudgery in a colliery, field, or a factory. But why would Samuel choose police work over traditional Jewish trade and crafts? Perhaps he had found friends among the force.
