Responsible for the death of an estimated 60 to 80 million soldiers and civilians, WWII was an international struggle that ended in 1945 following years of devastating battle. In 2020, 75 years on, the world stands ready to reflect upon the events of the war and acknowledge the enormity of the sacrifice and suffering it caused.
