7 May 1945 – General Jodl signed the unconditional surrender of all German forces to the Allies, to take effect on the following day, at Eisenhower’s headquarters near Rheims, France; the Soviets witnessed the surrender at Rheims, but did not recognize the surrender until another document was signed in the Soviet-conquered territory. On the same day, German occupation forces in Norway surrendered. Britain would mark VE day (Victory in Europe) for 8 May 1945.
Germans and collaborators perished in the years after the war had officially ended. It is a crime that will never be forgotten, and it is a crime that will forever stain the hands and national consciences of the former USSR, the United States of America, Great Britain and her Commonwealth nations.
The world lost in 1945.
