Once again, I’m here to talk about something very important. Namely, the end of World War 2.
As we all know, World War 2 was fought from 1939-1945, all in the name of getting rid of the worst human being in existence, Adolf Hitler. Hitler was the kind of jerk face who wanted to whack everybody who wasn’t German and he thought the Germans were the coolest. I also think he was kind of a jerk.
Anyway, Nazi Germany nearly overtook Europe until June 6th 1944, when the Allies begin a fight to take back their world. The next year, Hitler took his own life at the same time that Berlin was reconquered by the Allies, bringing the war in Europe to an end. My grandpa was part of that generation.
70 years after that war ended we’re still having issues in Europe as old prejudices and old hates have yet to die out. And that’s your history lesson for today.
