65 Years Ago: V-E Day

Sixty-five years ago (May 8, 1945) was V-E Day. Victory in Europe Day commemorates the unconditional surrender of Germany to Allied Forces, ending WWII in Europe. If you want to learn more about World War II, check out some items from our display. We also have a large collection of non-fiction and fiction books on the subject from home life in Sauk County to the battlefront. Our nation honors the World War II era with the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. It is one of the war memorials featured in our display case this month.
