Main observances of WW2 end on May 7

 

President Bronislaw Komorowski announced on Thursday that the main observances of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War Two would be held on May 7.
 
European presidents and state officials will take part in a debate and later will attend observances at Westerplatte (north Poland), President Komorowski said but did not reveal any names of visiting guests.
 
Westerplatte is a peninsula in Gdansk where the first clash of Germany's invasion of Poland took place on September 1, 1939. A small Polish garrison stationed there fought off fierce German attacks from land, sea and air until September 7.
 
For the first time President Komorowski announced plans to organise observances marking the 70th anniversary of the end of World War Two in Poland in late January. In an interview for the Gazeta Wyborcza daily the president said Westerplatte was a perfect location for such observances as it was a symbol of the beginning of the war. (PAP)
