History

10 Jan 1920, by virtue of Treaty of Peace between the Allied and Associated Powers and Germany (Treaty of Versailles), following the Conference of Paris (France), 28 June 1919. The League of Nations is the direct forerunner of the United Nations (UN). Pursuant to provisions laid down in the 'Common Plan for the Transfer, League of Nations Assets', which was drawn up jointly by a United Nations Committee and the Supervisory Commission, acting respectively on behalf of the United Nations and the League of Nations and approved, 12 Feb 1946, by the 1st General Assembly of the United Nations, certain material assets of the League were transferred to the United Nations. The resolution for the dissolution of the League was adopted by the 21st and final version of the Assembly of the League of Nations on 18 Apr 1946; since then the Archives of the League of Nations have been maintained at the United Nations Library in Geneva (Switzerland), in the building which originally housed the League.
