Today, Friday 8th May 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day (VE Day), the day when fighting against Nazi Germany in Europe came to an end.

On this day in 1945, Prime Minister Winston Churchill made an announcement on the radio at 3pm that the war in Europe had come to an end, following Germany’s surrender the day before.

It was an emotional day that millions of people had been waiting for. Many people were extremely happy that the fighting had stopped and there were big celebrations and street parties. Huge crowds – with lots of people dressed in red, white and blue – gathered outside Buckingham Palace in London.

They cheered as King George VI and his family, including HRH Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret, came out onto the balcony to greet everybody.

Princess Elizabeth and her sister were allowed to leave the palace and celebrate with crowds outside, although they had to do it secretly. The future Queen described it as “one of the most memorable nights of my life”.

But VE Day was also a moment of great sadness and reflection, as millions of people had lost their lives or loved ones in the conflict. Many had to continue fighting in other battles and lots of people were being kept as prisoners of war abroad.
