Today is Victory in Europe Day, aka VE Day.
Because May 8 1945 was a life-changing day for millions of people all over the globe.
The day marked the end of World War II in Europe and the end of six years of sacrifice, death and endurance.
VE Day is a day to reflect on the horrors of war and remember how close the world came to being permanently oppressed by Hitler and the Nazis.
2015 is the VE Day 70th anniversary.
