Day of Remembrance of Victims of World War II – May 8

On November 22nd 2004, the UN declared May 8-9 as a “Time of remembrance and reconciliation for those who lost their lives during the Second World War.”

These dates were chosen because May 8th is the anniversary of the date when the World War II allies accepted the unconditional surrender of the armed forces of Germany, which marked the end of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich.

May peace prevail!
