Construction of the Berlin Wall The United Nations is an international organization that was founded in 1945 and is currently made of 192 member countries. The United Nations succeeded the League of Nations and its goals are to promote international law, economic stability, and social progress and to encourage peace and human rights. The United Nations has been very successful at maintaining peace, and in 1988, it received the Nobel Peace Prize for its efforts. It plays a key role in social and economic development, with many efforts to support human rights and improve famine, poverty, and literacy rates. The Marshall Plan, or European Recovery Program, was the United States's plan to help economic and political recovery in Europe after World War II. Trying to prevent the spread of communism, the United States announced Marshall Plan on June 5th, 1947. The Marshall Plan was successful in helping Europe to recover and pushing communism out of the countries. However, it weakened the United States' relations with the Soviet Union and was a factor of the start of the Cold War. Mohandas Ghandi was a leader of India's fight for independence from British rule. Ghandi was a very influential ruler, and he encouraged nonviolent protests, or passive resistance, such as his famous salt marches. Ghandi was one of the most influential leaders not just in India, but in the world. He is a highly respected political figure, and he led India to independence. In 1948, Korea was divided into North and South Korea. North Korea was under the control of The Soviet Union, and South Korea was under control of the United States. Since the division, the countries have had poor relations and even went to war in 1950. While South Korea has blossomed into a major world power, North Korea still has much more poverty. The 38th parallel line has become a representation of the poor relations between North and South Korea, the drastic economic and social differences between the countries, and the difficulties of World War II and the Korean War.
