When the Allied forces entered Germany, they discovered that millions of innocent Jews were put in extermination camps, this is known as the Holocaust. More fighting remained in the Pacific. American forces neared Japan because they would not surrender. In August 1945, America dropped an atomic bomb in Japan in hopes that they would surrender. Tens of thousands dies, but still refused. American forces dropped another atomic bomb, this day is marked a V-J Day. The long war was finally over.
