You probably recognize the three men above, but just in case: Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin. On this day in 1945, in Yalta, they sat together to have their picture taken, before getting back to the business of carving up Europe between them, thus deciding - without bothering to ask them - the future, for good or ill, (mostly the latter), of millions. Hitler had wanted to do much the same, but he had been disposed of. The three men in the picture would all have described themselves as democrats.
