05. December 1941

On December 5, 1941, Karl Siegmund Litzmann was appointed to the position of Commissar General of Estonia.

This was the official end of military occupation in Estonia, even though in reality, military continued to play a big role in the governing of Estonia. Litzmann was an experienced member of the Nazi party, who was sympathetic towards Estonians, but that did not stop him from firmly carrying out his party's politics.

Lizmann served as a Commissar General until September 17, 1944, when Germans decided to leave Estonia.
