The summit of the heads of governments of three Allied Powers in the Second World War-the Soviet Union, the United States and Great Britain - was held in Tehran from November 28 to December 1, 1943. There the Allied leaders, Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill, adopted a declaration of joint actions in the war against Fascist Germany and set a date for the opening of a second front in Europe. The Crimean (Yalta) conference of the three Allied leaders was held in the Livadia Palace in Yalta from November 4 to 11, 1945. At that meeting the allies discussed and agreed their military plans and decided to create occupation zones in post-war Germany, collect war reparations from Germany and found the United Nations Organisation. The Potsdam (Berlin) conference of the leaders of the powers that won in the Second World War, held in the Zezilienhof Castle in Potsdam from July 17 to August 2, 1945, made the decision to demilitarise and de-nazify Germany and disband the German monopolies, adopted documents on reparations and post-war borders and confirmed the transfer of Koenigsberg to the Soviet Union.
