The Yalta Conference (sometimes called the Crimea Conference) was held from 4 to 11 February 1945, a few months before the Second World War ended in Europe. The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (Winston Churchill), the President of the United States (Franklin D. Roosevelt) and the dictator of the Soviet Union (Joseph Stalin) all met in Crimea and talked about what to do with Germany. The Yalta Conference was important in European history.
