Today it is 60 years ago the World War II ended in Denmark. In some countries it took a bit longer.
In Denmark the message that the Nazi’s had capitulated, came in the evening on May 4, and in most parts of the country the war ended right there – or the next day, when the message had reached everyone.
The German armed forces surrender unconditionally on May 7 in Reims, France. And the next day Germany signs its unconditional surrender in Berlin.
May 8 is the official “Victory in Europe” day.
