“This month, we celebrated the 75th anniversary of V-E Day, the formal acceptance of Germany’s unconditional surrender in Europe. Though the war would still rage on other fronts for three more months, this milestone brought hope and freedom to millions of people. To help mark the significance of V-E Day and to honor the legacy of WWII soldiers, is opening all our newspapers for free, available until May 17th. We hope this will give you a chance to discover more about what role your ancestors played during WWII and the personal stories that lie behind that period of history.”
