Despite the fact that the Second World War was one of the most tragic events in human history, it has somehow turned into one big meme. Here we retell the events of World War II through the use of memes. Perhaps this is the best way to teach the younger generations about history!
This doesn’t apply to me because I cannot read
In the beginning, there was just a blatant disregard for the stipulations laid out in the Treaty of Versailles.
Germany was the first victim

And so ends World War II
Bring on the Cold War!
