This humble site, a former technical school north of the train station, was the setting for one of the 20th century’s turning points: the surrender of the Germans to the Allies, which ended World War II. General Eisenhower himself was on hand on the fateful day, May 7, 1945, and the room hasn’t changed since the papers were signed. The exhibit includes an extensive collection of military uniforms, original US newspaper cuttings, German streets signs from Reims, and a short film in French, German, and English.
