Image of The New York Times newspaper’s headlines for the 11th of November 1918, marking the armistice declaration for the end of the First World War. Headlines read; “Armistice signed, end of the war! Berlin seized by revolutionaries; New chancellor begs for order; Ousted Kaiser flees to Holland.”
