Interesting that the Soviet Union always celebrated VE Day on May 9 instead of May 8.

he has a great book of pics from the Nurnberg Trials.
"In the Soviet Union the end of the war is considered to be May 9, when the surrender took effect Moscow time. This date is celebrated as a national holiday - Victory Day - in Russia and some other post-Soviet countries."
