Today, April 12, 2015. On this day in the war years:

In 1941:

German troops entered Belgrade on April 13, and completely overwhelmed him.

In 1942:

The court in the French town of Riom decided to postpone their next meeting on indefinitely (as it turned out – forever). Rimskii the trial began in February 1942. Judged by former Prime Ministers Edouard Daladier of France, Fields Reynaud, Leon Blum and commander in chief of the army of Maurice Gustave Gamelin, where the collaborationist Vichy government declared the sole culprits of the defeat of France in 1940 and therefore traitors. Despite strong pressure Petain and Hitler, Rimsky the court does not hurry with the verdict. All of the defendants were interned in Germany, but survived and after the war returned to their homeland.

On the roads of Bombay blew up British freighter "Fort Stikin", which had on Board 300 tons of TNT and 1395 tonnes of ammunition. Two explosion generated giant waves were broken or badly damaged 50 large ships, 12 – a fire broke out. Was almost completely swept away the harbour and severely damaged the town. 1,500 people were killed, over 3000 injured.

In 1944:

Troops of the 3rd Ukrainian front liberated Tiraspol.

Troops of the 4th Ukrainian front liberated more than 150 settlements and came to the Northern outskirts of Simferopol. The independent coastal Army liberated more than 140 settlements, and came to Feodosia.

Troops of the 2nd Ukrainian front liberated the town of Dubossary and the Romanian city of falticeni.

The Soviet government proposed to the Romanian government previously agreed with the allies the truce. The Antonescu government under strong pressure from Germany have left these proposals unanswered.

In 1945:

Troops of the 2nd Belorussian front occupied the city of Dresden, came to the coast of the Danzig Bay North of Gdynia and took the city of Putzig.

Troops of the 1st Belorussian front captured the city of Kyustrin on the Oder.

12 March on all fronts 134 destroyed tank and shot down 9 enemy aircraft.

Himmler and his personal doctor Felix Kersten signed a "Treaty in the name of humanity": "it is Hereby resolved: 1) That concentration camps will not be blown up 2) At the transition of allied troops will be decorated with white flags 3) Further destruction of the Jews will not, Jews will be treated like other inmates 4) Sweden is allowed to send food parcels to the imprisoned Jews."

In the concentration camp Bergen Belsen died 15-year-old Jewish girl Anne Frank. Published in 1947, her diary has made worldwide a bombshell: for the first time many understood what fascism is.
