Lubusz (Polish: Lubuskie) [1] is a region in western Poland bordering Germany. Until 1945, the region was known as the Neumark, (Polish: Nowa Marchia), as part of the Prussian province of Brandenburg and thus an integral part of Germany. Lubuskie originally was part of medieval Poland during the 1100's and returned to Poland with the Allied sponsored border changes following WWII. While administered here as a part of Greater Poland, parts of it historically also belonged to Silesia and Pomerania.
