The Yalta Conference was made between February 4th and 11th, 1945 between the three super power leaders: Winston Churchill (Great Britain), Franklain D. Roosevelt (United States), and Joseph Stalin (Soviet Union). The discussed the final defeat of Nazi Germany and what would occur after. It had been decided that Germany would be split into seperate occupied zones owned by France, the US, the Soveit Union, and Great Britain.
The main problem discussed during the conference was what to do with the Eastern European countries that had deeply suffered during World War II. They agreed that the Eastern European countries would have free elections. Later, Stalin would force Communists to move to power in the Eastern Block countries such as Poland, Czechoslvakia, Hungary, and Romania. The Soviet Union was also given the land they had lost during the Russo- Japanese War. They agreed to also create the United Nations.
Global Perspective: The following quote was made by William Leahy, an observant of the Yalta Conference, referring to Joseph Stalin. "The proposal in brief was: Reparations in kind should include factories, plants, communication equipment, investments abroad, etc., and should be made over a period of ten years, at the end of which time all reparations would have been paid. The total value of the reparations in kind asked by the Soviet was 10 billion dollars, to be spread over the ten-year period... Churchill objected to the 10 billion-dollar figure, and he and Roosevelt agreed that a reparations committee should be appointed to study the issue." This quote demonstrates how Stalin and the Communists disagreed with the US and other western powers.
