VE Day

VE Day

 

Victory in Europe (VE) Day on 8 May 1945 saw Britain and its Allies formally accept Nazi Germany's unconditional surrender after almost six years of war.

At 15:00, Prime Minister Winston Churchill announced on the radio that the war in Europe had come to an end, following Germany's surrender the day before.

This year we mark 75 years since this day. The document below from Mr McGrattan contains links and ideas to learn more about this historic event.
