Harry Truman, Winston Churchill (later Clement Atlee), and Josef Stalin met in the German city of Potsdam to discuss the future of Europe. It had earlier been determined at the Yalta Conference that a meeting between the “Big Three” would be held following the surrender of Germany. Several agreements emerged from Potsdam that would confirm the occupation of Germany, matters pertaining to War Criminals, and territorial issues in Eastern Europe.
