Victory in Europe Day (or V-E Day) was the public holiday celebrated on 8th May 1945 to mark the acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany's unconditional surrender. The war lasted from 1939 to 1945 and was thought to have caused the deaths or 50 to 80 million people (around 4% of the world's population at the time). Once over, the whole of the Western World celebrated the end of war and the start of a new era, marked by the creation of the UN whose main goal was to maintain worldwide peace and Sir Winston Churchill being beaten in election. We thank all servicemen and women who made huge sacrifices back then.
