D-Day to V-E Day

World War II continued for almost 11 months after the successful Normandy landings in France on June 6, 1944, commonly known as D-Day. Here are some of the key moments that led to Victory in Europe Day on May 8, 1945.

Czech Republic Consul General Pavel Sepelak spoke at a Holocaust Remembrance event last May at the Museum of Tolerance. 


Bill Harvey, the late, Hollywood stylist and Czech Holocaust survivor (92 years of age when he recorded this) recounts his experience in Auschwitz. 


Belgian-born gentile, John P. Verbeke recounts his life under Nazi German occupation beginning in May 1940, through Allied liberation beginning V-E Day, 8 May 1945. He explains what life was like for Christians and Jews and the conditions Belgian inhabitants were placed under by the Germans and their collaborators.
