70th Anniversary of VE Day

70th Anniversary of VE Day

Today marks 70 years since the fall of Nazi Germany and the axis powers.

May 8, 1945 was called V-E day for "Victory in Europe".

That's when Germany's surrender was announced.

The Germans actually surrendered on May 7 at the headquarters of General Dwight Eisenhower in Reims, France.

But the agreement did not take effect until the next day.

Celebrations and memorials will take place all over the world today, including Moscow, London, and France where V-E day is a national holiday.
