    (1) May 9th – What will be celebrated in Moscow later today?

    (2) If we had marked it, which as far as I know we didn’t except for Ele’s “May 8th in History” post yesterday, we would have marked on a day ago or even on Tuesday – why the difference?

    (3) One of the key players in these events was celebrating his Birthday at the time and later said it made it “his most enjoyable Birthday”

    Can you name him?

    (4) Can you name this song?

    1. VE day for WW II
    2. The German High Command actually signed the surrender document on the 7th at Reims in France. It is celebrated in Britain and the US on the 8th. Stalin hadn’t, however given permission for a Russian General at Reims to agree to the surrender so didn’t accept it had happened until it was (repeated?) on the 9th in the East. It was something like that anyway.
    3. That was Harry Truman
    4. I have no idea. I can handle a couple of non-English languages but not what I assume is Russian. I guess it must be the Red Army choir singing a patriotic anthem.
