World War II; Part 9

Posted: January 7, 2009 in World War II

In today’s video, we learned about the concentration camps where the Nazis had kept Jews, prisoner of war, and other people Hitler thought were inferior. The Allies were able liberate(free) the people trapped in the camps when the war was nearing the end. The Soviet Army at the time were attacking the town of Berlin in Germany. They say that Hitler shot himself in order to escape and named a close military officer as his successor. The Second World War continued.

The best invention of the war would be the atomic bomb. The Allies used two bombs in Japan on the towns of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Eventually, the Emperor of Japan surrendered. We had won World War II.
