Can I say this in English?
1. The world/society will never learn whether it was/is true or not.
2. The world/society will never learn the true story behind it.

Yes, but don't use Society. Stick with The world.

If you include yourself in that, you can say "We will never learn the truth" or similar.

If you do want to use society, I think it's better without the definite article.
