April 25th 1945 - Meeting of American and Soviet troops in Torgau


April 25th 1945: American and Soviet armed forces meet in Torgau on the banks of the Elbe, and celebrate their brotherhood for the cameras. Called "Elbe day" in the U.S., was to symbolize the unity of the Allies in the fight against Hitlers Germany. The reality however was different. Due to the different interests of the two occupying powers regarding the future of postwar Germany friends should soon turn into enemies. Enemies who until the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact would face each other as two massively armed superpowers.
