Today, people from around the world celebrate Victory in Europe Day also known as V-E Day. V-E Day commemorates the end of fighting in Europe during World War II. After years of intense war, the Third Reich of Nazi Germany was defeated when Allied troops marched in Berlin. The German Army ceased fighting on May 2, and formally surrendered unconditionally, on May 7. The surrender of all German forces was arranged for May 8 at 11:01. The Allied countries planned to celebrate victory, and the cessation of hostilities in the European theater.
While the United States, England, France and the other allied powers celebrate V-E Day on the 8th of May, Russia celebrates on the 9th. Thank you to all those who fought in World War II. May your sacrifices never be forgotten!
