    Perhaps you mean this atlas. This atlas was printed in 1940 and meant for students of the 5th and 6th grades of secondary school.

    The atlas contains many interesting maps. As you can see the borders of many countries have changed quite a while.

    The 2nd Polish Republic (1919-1939) is divided between Germany and the Soviet Union. The atlas circumscribes the German occupied territory of Poland as "Область государственных интересов Германии - Territory of German interests".
