WW2 | 70 Years Later

Edith Shain and sailor celebrating VE Day. 
In 2014 there were many memorials to D-Day and to those who lost their lives in that year. The winter of 1944-45 was deadly in Holland as the Nazis diverted what food there was to their own troops. In 2015 the events will be more celebratory, as victory was achieved in Europe on V-E Day - May 8-9.

Here are two posts that look ahead to 2015:
