Every 5 May the Netherlands celebrates Liberation Day. That is to commemorate the end of the occupation by Nazi-Germany during WWII.

A large part of the Netherlands was liberated by the First Canadian Army. By the liberation of the Netherlands there were also other allied forces involved incuding the British, Americans, Polish, Czechs, the French and others. 

On 5 May the Canadian general and the German commander reached an agreement about the surrender of the German forces in Wageningen. A day later the agreement was signed. Liberation Day is a national holiday and is celebrated every year.
