Unconditional Surrender


Unconditional Surrender
   At the Casablanca Conference in January 1943, the Allies agreed that negotiations with Germany would be based on its “unconditional surrender” as the prerequisite for concluding the war. This meant that the Allies would neither barter nor negotiate with the Nazis for Jewish lives, lest the Allies violate the policy of unconditional surrender.
