Fighting in the Great War or World War I ended with the Armistice on November 11th 1918 but didn't officially end until the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28th 1919, missing Easter by just over 2 months. Some say it didn't end until the Treaty of Sèvres was signed on August 10th 1920. The Paris Peace Conference began on January 18th 1919 and came to an end on January 21st 1920 with the inaugural General Assembly of the League of Nations
