The Big Three

By Linda Tancs

In 1945, U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Soviet leader Joseph Stalin met at Livadia Palace near Yalta in Crimea to discuss Europe’s post-World War II reorganization. Known as the Yalta Conference, it was one of three meetings of the so-called Big Three.  Seventy years later, Russia has unveiled a colossal monument to the Big Three in Yalta to commemorate the historic gathering. The 10-ton bronze sculpture features figures that are 10 feet high.
