Berlin-Karlshorst Museum, Berlin
Opened in 1995, the museum is located at the historical venue of the unconditional surrender of the German armed forces, the Wehrmacht, on 8 May 1945 and was a joint venture dedicated to the history of the German-Soviet war and the of Nazi rule.
With this act of ratification in Karlshorst of the surrender document signed the day before in Reims, World War II came to an end in Europe.
The building was the officers' mess of the Wehrmacht pioneer school and then the headquarters of the Soviet Military Administration in Germany. In 1949 at this location the Soviets handed over administrative authority to the first government of the German Democratic Republic (GDR). From 1967 to 1994 the building contained a branch of the “Central Museum of Armed Forces Moscow” featuring the unconditional surrender of nazi Germany in the Great Patriotic War.
