Poland marks National Victory Day

In Polish News

The 8th May marks National Victory Day in Poland. On this day, the nation commemorates the victory over Nazi Germany in World War 2.



National Victory Day is celebrated on May 8 to mark the end of World War 2 and victory over Nazi Germany. It was adopted on the 24th of 2015. Prior to 2015, National Victory Day was marked on the 9th of May, similarly to post-soviet countries where the WW2 victory is still celebrated on the 9th.

The Second World War ended with the signing of unconditional surrender by the Germans in Berlin. It took place on the 8th of May at 22:30 Central European time with the end of the war set at 23:01 (CET).

At the time when the document, which declared Germany’s surrender, was signed, it was already past midnight in Moscow, therefore Russia and other post-soviet nations celebrate victory day on the 9th of May.
