In 1945 in the Crimean resort town of Yalta three of the world’s most powerful men met to help shape the future of Europe and with it the world. One of the most headlining events of the Yalta conference would be the division of Germany after their complete and unconditional surrender, but would become of primary concern is the rebuilding of Europe not only economically but politically as, “the Americans and the British generally agreed that future governments of the Eastern European nations bordering the Soviet Union should be “friendly” to the Soviet regime while the Soviets pledged to allow free elections in all territories liberated from Nazi Germany.” (The Office of the Historian n.d.)
