Today we give thanks for those who fought and died for our Freedom.

Below you will see a couple of excerpts taken from google, and pics, (except the last one which is my house), I decided to do a copy and paste as it would be quicker and easier for you to click on the links instead of me adding loads of link, I hope you find this useful.

Victory in Europe Day, generally known as VE Day (United Kingdom) or V-E Day (US), is a day celebrating the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany‘s unconditional surrender of its armed forces on Tuesday, 8 May 1945, marking the end of World War II in Europe. VE Day is celebrated across Western European states on 8 May, with several countries observing public holidays on the day each year, variously called Victory Over Fascism Day, Liberation Day or simply Victory Day.

RussiaBelarus, and Serbia celebrate on 9 May, as do several former Soviet bloc countries. Israel also marks VE Day on 9 May, as a result of the large number of immigrants from the former Soviet bloc, although it is not a public holiday. The term VE Day existed as early as September 1944,[1] in anticipation of victory.

Why was VE Day important? V-E Day stands for Victory in Europe Day. It marks a very important event in World War 2 – the end of the War with Germany on Tuesday 8 May 1945. … It marks a very important event in World War 2 – the day Japan surrendered to the Allies after almost six years of war on 15 August 1945.

What happened after VE Day? On 8 May 1945 millions of people across the world celebrated Allied victory in Europe. But VE Day did not signal an end to the Second World War. … In June 1945, 50 countries signed the United Nations Charter and pledged to maintain international peace and security.
