This museum was originally called the 'Museum for the unconditional surrender of facist Germany in the great Fatherland War 1941-'45'. Later the museum was unofficically called, the 'German-Russian Museum'. Right now it is, Museum Berlin-Karlhorst, like it was in 1995.
Room where the German military high command signed the unconditional surrender of Germany on May 8th 1945!
Originally there were only three flags, the French flag was added later, it is s a great story, go to the museum and find out why.
