FRAGMENTS | The Surrender

In the period of March-April 1945, the final battles of the war unfolded, resulting in the capture of approximately one and a half million German soldiers by the Soviet Union and the Allied forces. Over the subsequent months, an additional 200,000 German soldiers were taken as prisoners of war.

In early May, the highest-ranking officials of Nazi Germany surrendered, and on May 7, General Alfred Jodl signed Germany's unconditional surrender to the Allies.
