Upon the accomplishment of the First world war in Italian city San Remo a conference happened upon the decision of which at the territory of modern Lebanon and Syria French mandate had been spreading.

In 1940, Germany occupied France, and Vichy government took over the power under the territory of France. Anri Fernan Denz was appointed to be the supreme commissar of Lebanon.

Formally independence of Lebanon was pronounced in 1941; however, France continued to implement the duties of mandate.

Giving in to the pressure of the nation of Lebanon and international community, on the 22-nd of November 1943 France set prisoners free and confirmed the independence of Lebanon. This day is celebrated in Lebanon as the Independence Day.
