Victory in Europe Day, also known as VE Day, commemorates the date when the
World War II Allies formally accepted the unconditional surrender of the armed
forces of Nazi Germany and the end of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. The formal
surrender of the occupying German forces in the Channel Islands was not until
9 May 1945. Celebrations erupted throughout the western world, from Moscow
to New York upon hearing of the surrender.
