Abstract: We classify connected Lie groups which are locally isomorphic to generalized Heisenberg groups. For a given generalized Heisenberg group $ N$, there is a one-to-one correspondence between the set of isomorphism classes of connected Lie groups which are locally isomorphic to $ N$ and a union of certain quotients of noncompact Riemannian symmetric spaces.
