By the way, the first USA-USSR "encounter" in Strehla, and the second one nearby, did not really become famous. It was the third one, in Torgau, that was staged and filmed again one day later ... and thus made it into many history books. ;)

Right, April 26, 1945 the commanders of the 69th Division of the U.S. Army and the 58th Guards Division of the Red Army met at Torgau. That's when the photo was taken Silvashko and Robertson, who became the prototype of the coin.
