Show location on map

Casablanca and Karlshorst: These two places are linked by the Allied demand for unconditional surrender of Germany in the Second World War.

The Second World War in Europe ended on May 8, 1945. Two years earlier, at the conference in Casablanca in January 1943, the Allies set the common goal of war for the first time: the unconditional surrender of the German Reich and its allies Italy and Japan. The final achievement of this war goal took place on May 8, 1945 in Berlin-Karlshorst.
The exhibition is dedicated to the last years of the World War. This war phase, particularly in the years 1944 and 1945, was characterized by an escalation of the Nazi terror.

Due to the Corona pandemic, the exhibition first opened on the net. There are various digital offers on the website The highlights of the exhibition as well as the historical surrender hall will be presented in a 360-degree tour. The website will also feature series of historical photographs of the surrender in Karlshorst and the end of the war in Berlin in 1945, presenting individual objects and providing insights into the creation of the exhibition. Most offers are available in five languages: German, Russian, English, Ukrainian and French.
