Europe Commemorates The End Of World War II 

Across Europe, people are commemorating 75 years since the end of World War Two. On May 8th, 1945, Nazi Germany gave its unconditional surrender to the Allies.

Many large events to commemorate the anniversary had been planned, but were scaled down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Frank Walter Steinmeier laid wreaths at Germany’s main memorial to victims of war and dictatorship.

In a solemn ceremony afterwards, Steinmeier said Germans feel gratitude for the end of the Nazi dictatorship. The city of Berlin has made May 8th a one-off public holiday this year. {DW News}
