Genealogy Blogging Beat – Sunday 10 August 2014

Aug 10, 1945. A gathering to discuss surrender terms took place in Emperor Hirohito’s bomb shelter; the participants were stalemated. Hirohito settled the question, believing continuing the war would only result in further loss of Japanese lives. A message was transmitted to Japanese ambassadors in Switzerland and Sweden to accept the terms issued at Potsdam July 26, 1945, except that the Japanese emperor’s sovereignty must be maintained. The Allies devised a plan in which the emperor and the Japanese government would administer under the rule of the Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers, and the Japanese surrendered.
