L’Eupen-Malmédy is another contended region of Europe – under Prussian governance until the end of World War I, it was annexed to Belgium during the Paris Peace conference, a choice ratified by a controversial referendum in 1920. It was again annexed to Germany during World War II, and returned to Belgium in 1945. Today it is the largest German-speaking area of Belgium.
