A common sight during WW 2 - Bombings


The horrors of war, genocide

4. 6 million Jews were killed because Hitler believed in a "pure race" and over 20 million Chinese were killed by the Japanese. 20,000 Chinese were killed in Singapore alone.




5. Did you know that consequences of World War 2 spilled over and caused the Cold War?





6. "We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender." - Winston Churchill
