Topic: VE day, 60 Years since Nazi Germany was defeated!


World War II ended in Europe on 8 May 1945.
The unconditional surrender of Germany was signed at Reims on May 7 and ratified at Berlin on May 8.

This has been celebrated in many countries today.

A big thanks to everyone who fought for our freedom 60 years ago!

60 long years world have been rebuilded. Still I think that there is much people in Eastern Europe who feels that there is nothing to celebrate, with exception of fall of Hitler and his forces. For most, Stalin's Soviet Union was no better option that Hitler's Germany. In western Europe it can, or even better must be considered as defeat of monster.

Well, I want to give credit to all people who fought for their homeland. May Second World War never happen again, I hope. Still, there is much to be done to throw away dictators like Hitler and Stalin.

I also have to give credit for homefront. Without their support at least my homeland would have fallen.

Our generations are so lucky that they did not have to live under the spectre of war, invasion and occupation. We really do owe a tremendous debt to those who fought for our freedom. The Second World War truly was one of the most momentous times in human history.
