On the 8th of May in 1945, Nazi-Germany signed an unconditional surrender to the Allied forces of Great Britain, United States of America (USA), and Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). Thus, the war in Europe ended. However, war continued in Asia.
Adolph Hitler was believed to have committed suicide one week earlier when he finally realized that his forces could not win the war.
In Asia, the war continued between the Allied forces and Japan for another four months, until Japan also surrendered and the Second World War was finally over.
