    While nations celebrate Victory in Europe (VE) Day to mark the defeat of Nazi Germany, for Berlin, 8 May is both a day to remember the victims of the Nazi regime and a moment to celebrate freedom from Nazism.

    Berlin is commemorating the 75th anniversary of Germany’s surrender and the end of World War II by projecting "Thank you" messages in several languages on the Brandenburg Gate.

    The languages used in the projections are those of the victorious allies, the USA, the Soviet Union, Great Britain, and France, who shared four-party administrations over Germany and Berlin.
