“World War II is not over. This may sound like a strange statement, given that it is common to say even the Cold War is over. How can the war that spawned the Cold War be continuing? However, this paper will contend World War II affected the balance of power among nations and changed nations’ views so drastically regarding the human cost of war and the destruction wrought by genocide and racism that in essence, World War II continues to be fought. The issues that it brought to the surface still remain the critical ones of the international consciousness.”
