Transcript Photo long-range strategic cooperation wets possible, there could be no tactical, day- by-day coordination. They were too far apart. But Russian troops have now crossed Poland. Thev are fighting on the eastern soil of Germany herself: British and Amcriceiti ireieips are neiw on German soil close to the Rhine River in lite west, ll is a different situation today from whal ii was fourteen months ago. \ closer tactical liaison bets become possible for the first time in Europe. Thai »:ts something else that was accomplished in the Crimean Conference. Provision was made for daily exchange of information between the armies under ihe command of General Eisenhower on the western front and those etrmies under the command of the Soviet marshals on that long eastern 'font, and also wilh our armies in Italy —without the necessity of going through 'he Chiefs of Staff in Washington or ' (union as in the past. You have seen one result of this exchange of information in the recent Bombings by American and English air- Waft of points which are directly related to lhe Russian advance on Berlin. From now on. American and liritish beavy bombers will be used in lhe day- by-day tactics of ihe war. We have begun lo realize. I ihink. lhal there is all 'lie difference in lhe world between tactics mi the one side and strategy on 'I liter ileiv-h\-ileiv tactical war ill direct support of Soviet armies as well M in the support of our own on the Western front. They are now engaged in bombing a'id strafing in order lo hamper the movement of German reserves, German "lalerials lo the eastern and western 'fonts from other parts of Germany or 'r»m Italy, Arrangements have been made for "n- mosl effective distribution of all Mailable material and transportation to foe places where they can best be used IJ1 lln- combined war effort American, "iii-b. and Russian.

I bene- always fell that """umi sense' prevails in lhe long run ?uiet, overnight thinking. I think lhal true In Germany just as much as ii ., here. The' German people as well as .,"' German soldiers musl realize lhal iii,. and surrender surrender by groups or eis individuals, the sooner their present agony will be over. They musl realize that only with complete surrender can they begin to re-establish themselves as people whom the world might accept as decent neighbors. We made it clear again al Yalta, and I now repeal, lhat unconditional surrender doe's not mean the destruction or enslavement of the German people. The Nazi leaders have deliberately withheld lhal pari of lhe Yalta declaration from lhe German press and radio. The) seek to convince lhe people nf Germany that lhe Pallet declaration docs mean slavery and destruction for them. They arc working et! it day emd night, for thai is bow the Nazis hope lo save theii own skins In deceive their people into continued and useless resistance. We did. however, make it clear at the Conference just whal unconditional surrender docs mean for Germany. ll means the temporary control of Germany bv Greal Britain, Russia. Pact sooner lhe sooner thev give S FORUM NEWS, Muy. 1955 —Wide World Photo Marshal Stalin and President Roosevelt confer in the Palace at Yalta, Crimea, Russia. France, and the United Slales. Each of these nations will occupy and control et separate zone of Germany^—and the administration of the four zones will be coordinated coordinated in Berlin by a Control Council composed of lhe representatives of lhe four nations. Unconditional surrender means sonic-. thing else, li means the end of nazism. [Applause.] It means the end of the Nazi party and eil! of il barbaric laws and institutions. It means the termination of all mili- taristic Influence in the public private, and cultural life of Germany. ll means for the Nazi weir criminals a punishment thai is speedy and jusl— and severe. It means the complete disarmament of Germany; the destruction of ils militarism and ii- military equipment; the end nf ils production of armament; the dispersal of eill of its armed forces: the permanent dismemberment of the German general staff which has so often shattered the peace of the world. It means that Germany will have in make reparations—reparations in kind Im lhe damage which it has done In the innocenl victims of ils aggression. Hv compelling reparations in kind— in plants, in machinery, in rolling slock, in raw materials -wc shall emiiel the mistakes lhat we and other people other nalions -made after the last weir. lhe demanding of reparations in lhe form nf money which Germany could never pay. \\ i' do not want ihe German people lo starve, or lo become a burden on the re'sl eef lhe- world. Our objective in handling Germany is simple it is lo secure lhe : -eloe eif lhe resl eif the world now and in the future. Too much experience has shown that thai objective is impossible, if Germany is allowed to retain an) ability lo wage- aggressive warfare. [Applause.] These objectives will not hurl lhe German people. On ihe contrary, they will protect them from a repetition of the fate which lhe general staff and kaiser- ism imposed on them before, anel which Ilillerism is mm imposing upon them again a hundredfold. It will be removing a cancer From the German body politic, which for generations has pro. dticed only misery, only pain for lhe whole world. During mv -teu , Yalta, I saw the kind of reckless. s,-,|s,.||.sS fury, eiml terrible destruction which comes out of German militarism. Yalta on the Black Sea had no military significance of any kind. It heul no defense. Before lhe lasl war. it heul been a resort a resorl feu- people like the czars and princes anil aristocracy and the hangers-on. However, after lhe war. after lhe Red revolution, and until the attack on the So\icl t nion b\ Hitler et fi'w years ago, lln- palaces and villas of t alta held been used as et rest elite! recreation center bv the Russian people. The Nazi officers look over lhe former palaces and villas for their own use. The only reason lhat the so-e'etlled palace of the former czar was slill habitable when wc got there weis lhat it had been given—or he thought it had been given —to a German general for his own property anil his own use. And when the resl eef Yelltel was ele'sl roved, he kept soldiers there in protect whal he thoughl had become bis own personal villa. When lhe lied army forced lhe Nazis ont of lhe Crimea almost a year ago lasl .April, it was found lhat all of the palaces were looted bv lite Nazis, and then nearly all of them were destroyed by bombs placed on lhe inside. Even lhe humblest of lhe homes of Yalta win not spared. There was little left of il excepl blank walls, ruins, and destruction. Sevastopol—thai wets a Fortified port aboul forty to fifty miles away—there again was a sect f utter destruction of a large city and greal navy \aials eiml great fortifications.
