The date 8th May 2005 commemorates the end of World War II sixty years ago. Even after so long a period of time, the consequences of this harrowing and inhuman war continue to effect us greatly. To mark the sixtieth anniversary of the end of the war in Europe, scores of museums, commemorative sites, cultural and academic institutes, embassies and political institutions will hold an extensive range of events dealing with the topic "Between War and Peace", to which Berlin has dedicated the year 2005.
