Transcript of Untitled Prezi

World War II World War II (WWII or WW2), also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945. It involved the vast majority of the world's nations—including all of the great powers—eventually forming two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most widespread war in history, with more than 100 million people serving in military units. In a state of "total war", the major participants placed their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities at the service of the war effort, erasing the distinction between civilian and military resources. Marked by mass deaths of civilians, including the Holocaust and the only use of nuclear weapons in warfare, it resulted in 50 million to over 75 million fatalities. These deaths make World War II by far the deadliest conflict in human history. History Two separate capitulation events took place at the time. First, the capitulation to the Allied nations in Reims was signed on 7 May 1945, effective 23:01 CET 8 May. This date is commonly referred to as the V-E Day (Victory in Europe Day) in most western European countries. The other World War II victory day, the V-J day (Victory in Japan Day) is commemorated in August, and is of considerably lesser significance in Europe. Victory Day 9 May In Russia and other countries Victory Day, or May, 9 is one of the greatest holidays of the year. It is a holiday of all people.
In all towns there are decorations, flags and placards in the streets, in the shop windows, and on the front of large buildings.
On Victory Day morning there are meetings and demonstrations of the veterans who fought in the Great Patriotic War.
On that day there is a military parade in all big cities of our country.
Flowers and souvenirs are given to those who took part in the Great Patriotic War.
There are a lot of people in the streets and squares, at theatres, cinemas and concert halls. They are all celebrating their holiday. Many people go to see their friends or go for walks in the parks.
In the evening there is a holiday salute and a Minute of Silence to remember all those who did not come back from the war.

Europe Celebration During the Soviet Union's existence, 9 May was celebrated throughout the USSR and in the countries of the Eastern Bloc. Though the holiday was introduced in many Soviet republics approximately between 1946 and 1950, it only became a non-labour day in Ukrainian (1963) and Russian (1965) SSRs. In the latter one, a weekday off (usually a Monday) was given starting 1966 if 9 May was to fall on a weekend (Saturday or Sunday).
The celebration of Victory Day continued during subsequent years. The war became a topic of great importance in cinema, literature, history lessons at school, the mass media, and the arts. The ritual of the celebration gradually obtained a distinctive character with a number of similar elements: ceremonial meetings, speeches, lectures, receptions and fireworks.[7]
After the fall of the communism in Central and Eastern Europe, most former USSR countries retained the celebration, though it was not formally celebrated by some of them. In Russia during 1990s the May 9 was not celebrated massively, because Soviet-style mass demonstrations did not fit in with the way in which liberals who were in power in Moscow communicated with the country’s residents. The situation changed when Vladimir Putin came to power. He started to promote the prestige of the governing regime and history, national holidays and commemorations all became a source for national self-esteem. Since then the Victory Day in Russia has increasingly been turning into a joyous celebration in which popular culture plays a great role. The celebration of the 60th anniversary of Victory Day in Russia in 2005 became the largest national and popular holiday since the collapse of the Soviet Union. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Teheran_conference-1943.jpg http://k20.kn3.net/socialphy/0/0/1/1/8/0/alexasur/CE3.jpg http://occawlonline.pearsoned.com/bookbind/pubbooks/brummettconcise/chapter98/medialib/illustrations/WALL5295743.gif https://www.google.ru/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&docid=83lHzA-8GSKjKM&tbnid=CtZ3sb3tsC1xpM:&ved=&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vsluhblog.ru%2F2010%2F05%2Fnarodnaia-fotoletopisy.html&ei=riZsUbC2KYGk4gS86IDQAg&bvm=bv.45175338,d.bGE&psig=AFQjCNFEgpBrjZ3aq2zCx8sysKon5L6tHA&ust=1366128686978018 Winner`s
