Commemorating the 70th Anniversary of V-E Day
On May 8, 1945, World War II ended in Europe. While the mood was exuberant in neighborhoods, work places, and families throughout the country, it was a bittersweet day—war still raged on in the Pacific and many veterans recall that they were being reassigned to prepare for the invasion of the Japanese mainland.
The Museum will commemorate this important anniversary of World War II with speakers who will recollect receiving the news, footage from newsreels from 1945, and historians reflecting on the meanings and legacies of Victory in Europe.
