Washington Journal focused on the history of World War II to mark the 60th Anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe. May 8th was V-E day. Audio clips from the Library of Congress' WW2 Oral History Project were played with video footage of the WW2 Memorial on the Mall in Washington, D.C.

Tom Wiener and Terry Shima talked about the end of World War II and about the Library of Congress Veterans History Project, which collects oral histories, correspondence, photographs, and other items.

Igor Belousovitch talked about being among the first American troops to encounter the Soviet Army in Germany and shows photographs of the event. A Russian-American, he was the only member of his unit to speak Russian.

Martin Weiss talked about his experience being held captive in Auschwitz and other concentration camps; and about being liberated by American troops at the end of the war. Several of his relatives died in the camps.

Richard Lingeman spoke by video remote from New York City close
