#OnThisDay In Europe, the end of the Second World War is officially recognised as the 8 May 1945, when the Allies formally accepted the unconditional surrender of N**i Germany.

This day is known as Victory in Europe (VE) Day. Although peace had been achieved in Europe, this was not the same in the Pacific, where the Allies were still at war with Japan.

The United Kingdom, the US and China had outlined terms for Japanese surrender in the Potsdam Declaration on the 26 July 1945. However, this was not accepted by the Japanese until atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima on 6 August, the Soviet Union declared war on the country on the 8th and a second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki on the 9th.

This prompted the Japanese government to accept surrender and agree to the Potsdam Declaration. This was signed on the 2 September 1945, thus ending the Second World War completely.

#OnThisDay After secretly negotiating and signing the German-Soviet Nonaggression Pact in late August 1939, Hi**er gave the orders to invade Poland on the 1st September.

Hi**er had been wanting to invade Poland for some time and in order to justify this, a series of incidents were staged along the German-Polish border to make it appear as though Poland was acting aggressively towards N**i Germany.

This included the ‘Gleiwitz incident’ on the 31st August. German operatives disguised themselves in Polish uniforms, ‘seized’ the radio station and broadcasted an anti-German message.

The invasion prompted an almost immediate declaration of War on Germany by the United Kingdom and France on the 3rd September. This would mark the start of a six year world war, which would become one of the largest and bloodiest conflicts in history.

#WeRemember: Today marks the 76th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp. In the media center of Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung (bpb) you can now watch the film "Zwischenräume. Begegnungen am Holocaustmahnmal" (Encounters at the Holocaust Memorial).

How is the Holocaust remembered in Germany today? For a year, the filmmakers observed the events at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. They spoke with many people there and encountered a microcosm that contains many of the themes and conflicts of contemporary remembrance culture.

Subtitles in English, Turkish, Russian, Hebrew and Arabic are provided: https://www.bpb.de/mediathek/318518/zwischenraeume

Bulgaria, Sofia, 1989: In the Footsteps of a Revolution | bpb

The end of WWII, in 1945, was a turning point for Europe and the world. The West began to rebuild their homes, institutions, and re-commit to democratic norms. But the East set on a 45-year long path in which communism extended its tentacles into every aspect of the societies. In a way, the fall of the totalitarian regimes in 1989/91 brought the promise to the East that 1945 brought to the West. 75 years after the end of WWII and 30 years after 1989, the generation born after these events is now asking the question: "What is the impact of history of the recent past on our present?"

Dealing with the past has been a difficult topic for the Bulgarian society - both when it comes to the communist history and to the history of transition to democracy. With a series of documentary video tours in Sofia, SofiaPlatform aims to explore the events of '89 through the places and people that bear witness of them.

In the first episode Louisa Slavkova from Sofia Platform and Bulgarian writer Georgi Gospodinov will take you on a tour to different historical sites in the capital and will talk about their experience of the revolution. Find the video here:
