World war 2 ended in 1989 True or False?

Myth. How old are you? WWII was officially ended in 1946. Truman signed the papers. He was one of our Presidents - in case the name is not familiar. Now there WAS Korea in 1951 - but it's over too! Does it bother anyone else reading the question? What are our children learning is school - history-wise? - Editted: It is not a myth! The war ended in 1989. As far as west Europe and America is concerned it did end in 1946 as this was the date the fighting stopped and the papers were signed but in fact the rebelion against communisium that the Nazi's had set up continued until 1989. A second notable thing that happened in 1989 was the fall of the Berlin this year Germany was recreated by the immalgimation of West Germany and East Germany. Even if you choose to use the signing of papers to signify the end of the war then although they were signed in 1946 they did not come into effect until Germany excisted again.....i.e. 1989 re: What are our children learning is school - history-wise? Hopefully not the same things I was taught or you were taught.....some schools still teach there are 9 planets in the solar is always a good idea to read up on things yourself before presuming your education was correct.
