In Potsdam Cecilienhof is also a famous palace together with Sanssouci. It is well known since the post world war II Potsdam Conference took place there from 17th till 25th July in 1945.
The participants were President Harry S Truman for the USA, leader Joseph W. Stalin for Soviet Union and Prime Minister Winston Churchill for UK who was replaced during the conference by Clement Attlee (winner of elections in UK). There were taken decisions which formed the future of Germany as well as whole Europe. The palace is kept the same way as it was during the conference and you can see there the furniture: tables, chairs, flags and even flowers as in 1945. On 26 July 1945 Churchill and Truman issued the Potsdam Declaration defining the terms for Japanese surrender. But the main idea for this building was a bit different. It was constructed in 1917. Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany had ordered it to be constructed for his son Crown Prince Wilhelm and his family. The house was designed by Paul Schultze-Naumburg.
