History of Neumark region:

the Potsdam Conference.
In the past, this territory was the eastern part of the German province Margraviate of Brandenburg called Neumark. Neumark existed as a German province since the 13th century. Numerous devastating wars swept through its territory, although there have also been years of peace and prosperity.
These lands were colonized by Church institutions, notably the Knights Templar and the Cistercians, during the Middle Ages. Before that, the region belonged partially to West Pomerania, Greater Poland, and Lubusz Land, at which time it was the region where wars between the Princes of Pomerania, Greater Poland, and Silesia took place.
In earlier times, the Slavic tribes had their settlements here, on the pleated post-glacial area with many small lakes, along the valleys of the Odra and Warta rivers.
