If it wasn't for this event the biggest war in all of history would not have taken place. With the largest number of deaths, it is safe to say this massive war affected almost everyone today and shaped the powers of our current time.
  • ANIME!!!

    Japnese animation was tested by the creation of a short samurai clip known as anime. This later grew popular when giant robots were introduced. Anime today is a big prt of Japanese culture and internationl intertainment. For me this was a huge part of the 20th century which truly does shape up atleast me world.

  • The Holocaust

    Little boy was dropped down on Hiroshima following by Fatman on Nagasaki on the 9th of August.

    UN Partition: Israel a Jewish State
    The United Nation's stunning decision of allowing the partioning of Palestine into lands with access for the Jews was a shocking event that really changed and shaped our world.

    Women's Right Movement

    What began in the 1840s was now brought back in Washington as the second wave of the Womens Right Movement. If it wasn't for this protest for rights and feminist laws, things like abortion, divorce, or female equality might not exist today, since they were acheived at that time.
  • Gulf War

    Gulf War
    Operation Dessert Storm resulted in the ignition of countless number of oil wells and hundreds of thousands of gallons being dumped into the Persian Gulf. The fact that it was a war is reason enough, but the value or cost of oil would not be as high today if not for this event of tons being lost.
