    Default 3 Framed Postcards - German Surrender in Reims

    I found this nicely framed set of 3 post cards at an antique store near me. The owner said he'd be willing to work out a deal with me... Can anyone offer any advice? I know my photos are very poor quality, but are these postcards authentic? Are they desirable?





    Thanks for taking a look!

    On 7 May 1945, at 2.41 am, the German surrender was signed in Reims. Fighting was to cease on 8 May at 11.01 pm.
    The news was officially announced on 8 May at 3 pm.
    The following day, 9 May, at 16 minutes past midnight, the full surrender was signed in Berlin. The Soviets, in command of the city since 2 May, thought that the surrender in Reims was just a preliminary document. France, a co-signatory of the Allies on these two documents, was represented in Reims by General Sevez and in Berlin by General de Lattre de Tassigny.
