The 75th Anniversary of VE Day Virtual Exhibit

Victory in Europe (VE) Day was the official end of the fighting in Europe in the Second World War. This virtual exhibit pays tribute to the men and women from the Okotoks district who helped liberate Europe – including those on the front lines, those who remained on the home front and especially those who gave their lives in the fight for peace.

The Liberation of Allied Prisoners of War

Approximately 9,000 Canadian servicemen were captured by the enemy and held as prisoners of war during the war. Among them were three residents of the Foothills. We honour these men, and their families, by sharing their powerful stories of survival.
