On 8th May 2020, it will be 75 years exactly since Victory in Europe was declared. It was a time of celebration but also a time to reflect on the sacrifice and courage that millions of people had shown during World War 2. As the anniversary approaches, we reflect again on the great sacrifice everyone made during our darkest days. On the 8th May 1945, millions of people took to the streets to show their relief at the end of many years of war.
