Do You Know Your World History?

On May 7, 1945 the ruling German leader Karl Dönitz sent German General Alfred Jodl to Reims, France to negotiate world war 2and sign the unconditional surrender of Germany. This would effectively end the Atlantic theatre of World War II the following day. Before committing suicide alongside his wife Eva Braun in Berlin, Adolf Hitler left a will in which he appointed Dönitz as the President of Germany. Hitler also appointed Joseph Goebbles as Chancellor of Germany but he committed suicide shortly after Hitler did. Toward the end of the war, it became common for high ranking Nazi officials to commit suicide in order to avoid capture and public execution. On the Allied side of the negotiations was Supreme Allied Commander Dwight D. Eisenhower.
