On the 8th of May 1945, Allied forces who had fought during the Second World War celebrated “VE Day” or “Victory in Europe Day”. Major cities in most Allied nations, as well as those cities in Western Europe which had formerly been occupied, rejoiced in the defeat of the Nazi war machine with the raising of flags and banners.

German forces lay down their arms and held their fire: In Prague, Germans surrendered to their Soviet counterparts, after the latter had lost more than 8,000 soldiers, and the Germans many more; in Copenhagen and Oslo; at Karlshorst, near Berlin; in northern Latvia; on the Channel Island of Sark — their surrender was complete with a final cease-fire, followed by more surrender documents that were signed in Berlin and East Germany.
