Food supply of Düsseldorf inhabitants and the British supply policy in the British occupied zone 1945–1948

The article analyses the food supply situation in the British occupied zone and especially in Düsseldorf during the three years after World War II in regard of the other joined phenomena like work productivity, health of the inhabitants and their opinions. By comparing these factors with the British supply policy and activities of the British administration in the occupied zone, Nigrin aims to prove that the Bizone was formed as a result of the supply crisis in West Germany which threatened to damage the industrial productivity in North Rhine-Westphalia, and consequently the whole of post war Europe.
