VE or Victory in Europe day, was the day the Nazi’s in Germany unconditionally surrendered to the allied forces back in 1945, 8-May-1945. It’s celebrated in the UK, and I am proud of our countries, and my ancestors, for the defeat of the fascist Nazi movement headed by Adolf Hitler – a truly evil regime, that committed horrifying crimes on a mass scale.
As I’ve said before many times on this blog, I’m EXTREMELY ANTI fascism or totalitarianism, they both end up being equally as abhorrent for people who live under such regimes. This is what vast numbers of our young men fought and died for in WW2, to protect our civilised free societies from – so we could enjoy liberty, freedom, freedom of speech, freedom from tyranny, freedom from genocide and peace.
And lest we forget the many women who also where an essential part of the cooperative allied forces machine.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE – TO ALL OF THOSE WHO HELPED DEFEAT THE NAZIS
REST IN PEACE – TO THOSE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES
Here’s what Churchill said :
Yesterday morning at 2:41 a.m. at Headquarters, General Jodl, the representative of the German High Command, and Grand Admiral Doenitz, the designated head of the German State, signed the act of unconditional surrender of all German Land, sea, and air forces in Europe to the Allied Expeditionary Force, and simultaneously to the Soviet High Command.
