In Karlhorst, a suburb of Berlin, the Act on Unconditional Capitulation of the German Army was signed coming into force on 9 May 1945, and marking the end of World War II in Europe. The Council of Ministers of Democratic Federal Yugoslavia proclaimed that day a holiday. Belgraders welcomed the victory with great joy. They gathered spontaneously on squares and streets carrying placards, banners, singing the Yugoslav hymn and hymns of the Allies. The central rally took place in Terazije Square where the Day of the Victory over Fascism was celebrated in a festive mood. A poster was printed for that occasion.
