Delegates Meet at the Potsdam Conference Ca. 1945Streaming Video - 1945
Following the defeat of Germany in World War II, the leaders of the United States, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union met just outside of Berlin to negotiate policies toward postwar Germany and plan for the ending of the war against Japan. At this meeting, U.S. president Harry S. Truman agreed to grant Poland additional land from Germany in exchange for the Soviet Union allowing the country to have free elections within one year. He also pressed Joseph Stalin to enter into the war against Japan. The conference ended on July 26. World War II ended less than three weeks later, after U.S. planes dropped two atomic bombs on Japan.
