Victory in Europe Day

Victory in Europe Day, generally known as V-E Day,VE Day, or simply V Day was the public holiday celebrated on 8 May 1945 to mark the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany's unconditional surrender of its armed forces.

The act of military surrender was signed on 7 May in Reims, France and on 8 May in Berlin, Germany.
