    The General Government administration (Regierung des Generalgouvernements) governed the area of Poland that was occupied by German forces from 1939 onward, but which had not been formally annexed into the Third Reich. The central authority of the board of the General Government, existed from September/October 1939, and even after German forces were routed from this area by the Red Army in 1944-1945, the administration continued to formally exist up until 8/9 May 1945, to the capitulation of the Third Reich. During its existence, the administration of the General Gouvernement was headed by Governor Hans Frank .
