COPYRIGHT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS/ONE-TIME USE ONLY NEW YORK CITY, MAY 7, 1945 The end came rapidly. On April 30, with Russian troops on his doorstep, Hitler killed himself in his bunker in Berlin. On May 4, German forces in Holland, Denmark, and northwest Germany surrendered to British Field Marshal Montgomery. On May 7, Germany signed an unconditional surrender with the Allies in Reims, France. Here, looking north from Forty-fourth Street, New York's Times Square is packed with crowds celebrating the news.
