Description

The ‘Big Three’

Significant assemblage of ink signatures from the Grand Alliance leaders of late World War II—Harry S. Truman, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin—penned on individual off-white slips ranging in size from 2.25 x .5 to 3.5 x .5. Matted together with a photo of the three men at the 1945 Potsdam Conference and framed to an overall size of 10.25 x 12.75. In overall fine condition.

The 'Big Three' met at the Potsdam Conference in July-August 1945 to determine the administration of postwar Germany. They came to various agreements relating to the German economy, punishment for war criminals, land boundaries, and reparations. The principal outcome was the decision to divide Germany into three zones of occupation (one for each nation), and to defer discussions of German reunification until a later date.
