VE Day 75

VE Day on 8th May 2020 marked 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the Second World War in Europe. 

The 75th anniversary was an opportunity to reflect on the enormous sacrifice, courage and determination of people from all walks of life who saw us through the Second World War and brought peace back to Europe.

We put together a number of resources to help Reading celebrate the anniversary from home during the Covid lockdown in 2020.
