The Armistice to stop the fighting in World War I took effect on 11 November 1918. This is the normal date given for the end of the war. That was 91 years ago from the perspective of 2009.

However, the Armistice did not technically end the war - only the fighting. The Treaty of Versailles formally ended the war Germany and the other Allies. It was signed on 28 June 1919. Other Central Powers signed separate treaties.
