Nazis Quit War!

That's the headline on the New York paper that my aunt saved 62 years ago and which I still have somewhere in the "archive". On April 30 Hitler committed suicide and on May 8, 1945 Admiral Raeder announced Germany's surrender. Both my parents approved. But as they were both in the Pacific theatre of war, were not quite as enthusiastic as the British crowds you can hear on Edward R. Murrow's broadcast here.
