Cecilienhof Palace

We visited the site of the German Emperor’s hunting lodge at Potsdam. In 1945, the Big 3 Allies – USA, Britain & the Soviet Union – met here to map out a future for Europe after the war’s end. Stalin, Truman & Attlee decided on the partition of Germany, reparations for war damages and the denazification of the people amongst other things. Quite possibly one of the most important meetings of the 20th Century.
