II. DECLARATION OF LIBERATED EUROPE
The following declaration has been approved:
The establishment of order in Europe and the rebuilding of national economic
life must be achieved by processes which will enable the liberated peoples to
destroy the last vestiges of nazism and fascism and to create democratic institutions
of their own choice. This is a principle of the Atlantic Charter - the right
of all people to choose the form of government under which they will live -
the restoration of sovereign rights and self-government to those peoples who
have been forcibly deprived of them by the aggressor nations.
To foster the conditions in which the liberated people may exercise these rights,
the three governments will jointly assist the people in any European liberated
state or former Axis state in Europe where, in their judgment conditions require,
to establish conditions of internal peace;
to carry out emergency relief measures for the relief of distressed peoples;
to form interim governmental authorities broadly representative of all democratic elements in the population
and pledged to the earliest possible establishment through free elections of
Governments responsive to the will of the people; and
to facilitate where necessary the holding of such elections.
The following protocol has been approved:
On the Talks Between the Heads of Three Governments at the Crimean Conference
on the Question of the German Reparations in Kind
Germany must pay in kind for the losses caused by her to the Allied nations
in the course of the war. Reparations are to be received in the first instance
by those countries which have borne the main burden of the war, have suffered
the heaviest losses and have organized victory over the enemy.
Reparation in kind is to be exacted from Germany in three following forms:
Removals of equipment, machine tools, ships, rolling stock, German
investments abroad, shares of industrial, transport these removals to
be carried out chiefly for the purpose of destroying the war potential of Germany.
(b) Annual deliveries of goods from current production for a period to be fixed.
(c) Use of German labour.
For the working out on the above principles of a detailed plan for exaction
of reparation from Germany an Allied reparation commission will be set up in
Moscow. It will consist of three representatives - one from the Union of Soviet
Socialist Republics, one from the United Kingdom and one from the United States
With regard to the fixing of the total sum of the reparation as well as
the distribution of it among the countries which suffered from the German aggression,
the Soviet and American delegations agreed as follows:
"The Moscow reparation commission should take in its initial studies as
a basis for discussion the suggestion of the Soviet Government that the total
sum of the reparation in accordance with the points (a) and (b) of the Paragraph
2 should be 22 billion dollars and that 50 per cent should go to the Union of
Soviet Socialist Republics."
The British delegation was of the opinion that, pending consideration of the
reparation question by the Moscow reparation commission, no figures of reparation
should be mentioned.
