Place names l.jpg

Place Names

  • Over time the names of places change. Some examples are:

Boundaries l.jpg

Boundaries

  • The boundaries of countries change for many reasons such as:

  • Decolonization

  • Wars

  • Countries break into smaller countries because people want self rule

  • Intervention of the United Nations


Decolonization l.jpg

Decolonization

  • Colonization is when a country takes over other countries or parts of the world. In the late 1800s European countries colonized much of Africa.

  • Most countries in Africa became independent in the 1950s and 1960s and the map of Africa had to be redrawn.

Wars

  • The boundaries of countries are often redrawn at the end of wars. At the end of World War I and World War II the boundaries of many countries in Europe changed.


Self rule l.jpg

Self Rule

  • In the early 1990s the Soviet Union broke apart peacefully and many countries regained independence.


United nations l.jpg

United Nations

  • In 1948, the United Nations created the country of Israel as a homeland for Jewish people who had been persecuted in WWII. The Muslim countries around Israel attacked the new country but lost three wars in 1948, 1967, and 1973.
