The White Rose (German: die Weiße Rose) Hans Scholl, Sophie Scholl, and Christoph Probst, Munich 1942. The members of the White Rose advocated nonviolent resistance as a means of opposing the Nazi regime. Hans Scholl and his younger sister, Sophie, both became committed anti-Nazis. As war broke out, Hans was studying medicine in Munich, and Sophie joined him there to study biology and philosophy in 1941. Her boyfriend, Fritz Hartnagel, was an officer in the Wehrmacht fighting on the eastern front. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Through extensive letter exchanges between Fritz and Sophie, historians have been able to piece together Sophie’s growing pacifism and Fritz’s alarm over the participation of German soldiers in mass killings of Jews and other atrocities. Meanwhile, Hans and two other students began a pacifist resistance movement called the White Rose, where they co-authored six anti-Nazi leaflets. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When Sophie learned of her brother’s activities, she joined the group, which would grow to about a dozen members. As a woman, she was much less likely to be stopped by police while carrying stacks of leaflets to be distributed in several cities and through the post. By early 1943, members of the White Rose were scattering leaflets by hand, and they began an anti-Nazi graffiti campaign, painting “Freedom” and “Down with Hitler” on buildings throughout Munich. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On February 22, 1943, Hans, Sophie and Probst were found guilty of treason and sentenced to death. The three were executed the same day by guillotine at Stadelheim Prison. All three were noted for the courage with which they faced their deaths, particularly Sophie who remained firm despite intense interrogation, and intimidation during the trial.

[Archaeologist Howard Carter and an Egyptian workman examine the third (innermost) coffin made of solid gold, inside the case of the second coffin inside King Tutankhamun’s tomb, opened in November 1922] . . . Carter spent decades as an archaeological excavator exploring burial sites in ancient Thebes (now Luxor) before finding the roughly 3,000-year-old resting place of Tutankhamun. This discovery, funded by Lord Carnarvon, received worldwide press coverage. With over 5000 artifacts, it sparked a renewed public interest in ancient Egypt, for which Tutankhamun's mask, now in the Egyptian Museum, remains a popular symbol. The deaths of a few involved in the discovery of Tutankhamun's mummy have been popularly attributed to the curse of the pharaohs. He has, since the discovery of his intact tomb, been referred to colloquially as "King Tut". . . .

This is exactly what my dad’s home looked like in England. The one he loved in doesn’t exist, anymore, because the area has been “slum scraped” - mowed completely down to dust and dirt - a handful of times since he lived there in the 40’s. ⠀ ⠀ This is the front of the homes, called “2 up, 2 down, meaning there were 2 rooms upstairs and 2 downstairs, with toilets being outside. Some families shared their outside toilets, but I don’t think my dad’s family had to. ⠀ ⠀ Baths were taken on Sundays in a bucket filled with water and pulled into the living area in front of the stove, with the man of the house going first, then on down to the youngest - my dad - going last 😝. ⠀ ⠀ Check out my Stories today to hear more about the stuff I’ve learned from my dad and uncle’s memories, and from working with George, the historian I met when I was in England (the same guy, you may remember, who saw a picture of my naked ass. 😬.

The first written description of Japan and it's people by a Westerner was written in 5th November 1549 in a letter from Kagoshima, Japan to Goa, India by St. Francis Xavier. When he arrived in Japan he was only able to communicate via his interpreter Anjiro a former samurai who converted to Christianity and was taken to Malaysia by the Portuguese where he meets Xavier. The Japanese knew very little of the wider world, they believed in this idea of Sangoku, the three major kingdoms of the world (Japan, China & India). They didn't know who Europeans or Portuguese were at the time and when Anjiro told them they arrived from India people were fascinated to learn about them & India. When they started their missionary work the Japanese thought they were teaching them a new type of Buddhist teaching, because of this misunderstanding they were given permission by Shimazu Takahisa, a ruling lord to spread Christianity until Buddhist monks protested against them and eventually Christianity was banned and people supporting the faith were persecuted. . . . . @onlyinjapantv @lifewhereimfrom #history #travel #culture #heritage #IndianHistory #japanesehistory #japan #india #indiajapan #historybuff #goa #asia #kagoshima #インド

December 12th 1940 - On this day in World War Two history, the Luftwaffe bombs Sheffield, England in a raid that lasts nine hours. By this point in time, the Germans had fully switched into the role of terror bombing British cities. During the Battle of Britain, the Germans had attacked British ports, industry, and RAF factories/airfields in an attempt to make possible a German invasion of the British Isles. By September, the RAF was not in a good place, and even though the Germans were sustaining large casualties, the choice to switch to terror bombing was the worst thing they could have done. It was all because of a lone German bomber that mistakenly bombed London instead of a tactical target. The British were outraged at this and subsequently bombed Berlin in retaliation. Hitler, with his large ego and quick temper, then ordered the outright bombing of British cities in an attempt to destroy their morale and ability to live at all, culminating in surrender. But, Hitler should have known better. He was facing Winston Churchill, not Neville Chamberlain, and thus he was going to have to take every inch of British ground before he physically forced Churchill to sign any sort of surrender. Churchill was not an easy man to break to say the least. With pressure pulled off the RAF, the British were able to recover in the air and start hitting back against the German Luftwaffe hard. The Germans eventually had to stop daylight bombings then constant bombings all together just because of the amount of losses they were taking. The decision to switch to blitz bombing instead of tactical/strategic bombing was the worst decision Hitler could have made during the war, and it would come to haunt him in the end. This picture shows a building bombed during WW1, rebuilt, and now bombed again. — #ww2 #wwii #worldwar2 #worldwarii #history2 #history #vintage #retro #historygram #historyinpictures #historygeek #historygeeks #historynerd #historynerds #historylover #historylovers #historymemes #historyfacts #historychannel #wwiihistory #secondworldwar #ww2vet #ww2history #warhistory #historybuff #historybuffs #militaryhistory #historylesson #historyiscool

🇬🇧 Song of Palestine/🇪🇦 Canción de Palestina (Palästinalied) . 🇬🇧Palästinalied (Song of Palestine) is a song written by Walther von der Vogelweide, the most important German medieval poet. The song deals with Palestine and the Crusades. The song consists of 13 stanzas in upper middle German. In general, current interpreters use only some of these stanzas. Palästinalied was composed on the occasion of the Fifth Crusade (1217-1221). Although it is a song of political and religious propaganda that describes a crusade in the Holy Land, it also recognizes the claim of all Abrahamic religions to the Holy Land, which is atypical in a song of this kind. Despite this, the song makes it clear that the Christian cause is the correct one. (Al diu werlt diu strîtet her / Wir sîn an der rehten ger / Reht ist, daz er uns gewer "All the world is warring here [in the Holy Land] / Our claim is the just one / It is right that He [God] grant it"). . 🇪🇦Palästinalied (Canción de Palestina) es una canción escrita por Walther von der Vogelweide, el poeta medieval alemán más importante y trata sobre Palestina y las cruzadas. La canción consiste en 13 estrofas en alto alemán medio. En general, los intérpretes actuales usan sólo algunas de estas estrofas. Palästinalied se compuso con motivo de la Quinta Cruzada (1217-1221). Aunque sea una canción de propaganda política y religiosa que describe una cruzada en Tierra Santa, también reconoce la reclamación de todas las religiones abrahámicas a la Tierra Santa, lo cual es atípico en una canción de esta clase. Eso sí, finalmente afirma que la causa cristiana es la correcta. (Al diu werlt diu strîtet her / Wir sîn an der rehten ger / Reht ist, daz er uns gewer "Todo el mundo está en guerra aquí [en Tierra Santa] / Nuestro reclamo es el justo / Es correcto que Él [Dios]lo otorgue"). . #history #historynerd #deusvult #historylover #art #historygeek #historybuff #music #ancient #musician #travel #archeology #musica #musicians #ancientrome #palestine #cruzados #crusade #crusaders #knight #chruch #divine #holy #medieval #instachile #poem #archeology #war #deutschland #germany🇩🇪

Moon Well ,some say that it is the most photographed Stepwell in India though not exactly on Golden Triangle route but for those who are interested can make that detour. Many in today's time may wonder about the utility of constructing such Stepwells in those times. But in a land which has a precident of recieving limited rainfalls and having no major rivers , constructing Stepwells and artificial water reservoirs was the only way to conserve rain water. Though there is not much information is available about this structure but looking at the massiveness of this Stepwell it would not be wrong to say that it definitely was on an important trade route. #chandbaori #moonwell #stepwell #abhaneri #historybuff #heritagetrail #exploringmycountry #experience #heritagemonument #lesserknownmonument #theheritagephotographyclub #traveltales #architecturalheritage #indialostandfound #architechturalmarvel #archeologicalsurveyofindia #architechturephotography #chasinglight #playoflight

Joan Little (pronounced "Jo Ann") is an African-American woman whose trial for the 1974 murder of a white prison guard at Beaufort County Jail in Washington, North Carolina, became a cause célèbre of the civil rights, feminist, and anti-death penalty movements. Little was the first woman in United States history to be acquitted using the defense that she used deadly force to resist sexual assault. Her murder trial focused national attention on the issues of a woman's right to defend herself from rape, the validity of capital punishment in North Carolina, racial and sexual inequality in the criminal justice system, and the rights of prisoners in general. It also inspired women's rights movements abroad. The trial became very well know in the late 70s due to the connections between racism, sexism, rape against women of color, as well as women's rights movements, which also added to its divisive nature world wide. Little's supporters saw a woman that was a victim of racism, sexism, and was vulnerable because she was the only female prisoner at the Beaufort jail during that time. Her detractors were convinced she lured the guard into her cell with ideas of sex and killed him in order to escape the prison. - For this 3 part workout you will do 12 hang clean and jerk 12 jump over, 9 clean and jerk 9 jump over, 6 and 6.

HMS Barham with boat booms rigged following her 1931-1934 refit. She is still painted in the dark grey of the Home Fleet, which had been split into the Atlantic Fleet and the Reserve Fleet following WWI and effectively ceased to exist for thirteen years. That ended when Depression-era pay cuts triggered mutiny among the lower ratings aboard four capital ships and three cruisers on 15 September 1931 at Invergordon, and the Atlantic Fleet was renamed several months thereafter in March 1932 while Barham was in the yard. Presumably, the name change was to whitewash the stain of the mutiny from Royal Navy culture. - Barham would be transferred to the Mediterranean with the rest of her sisters to finish out the decade, and would wear a much lighter shade of grey while assigned to that warmer posting.

Most of the webbing is original, the helmet and net are original, the rifle is an @denixreplicas that I’ve worked on to bring it to WW2 spec. Sturm roughouts (I need to dub them) and an unknown repro M41 jacket and SOF wools. I still need to add the arm flag and 82nd SSI.

Today on December 10, 1652, Dutch warships temporarily take control over the English Channel after winning the Battle of Dungeness. ••••• The Battle of Dungeness was a naval engagement fought between the English and Dutch navies. The battle was part of the First Anglo-Dutch War and occurred off the coast near Kent. Before the battle, English-commander Robert Blake mistakenly split up his core fleet. He sent the bulk of his ships to serve the Mediterranean and Baltic Seas during the winter months. The Royal Navy recently defeated the Dutch at the Battle of Kentish Knock in September 1652. As a result, Blake falsely assumed that the enemy was finished attacking for the season. It was considered dangerous to try and move the fleet so late in the year. ••••• After their loss at Kentish Knock, the Dutch immediately began reinforcing their navy. They desperately needed warships to protect a recently assembled merchant convoy of three-hundred vessels. Their fleet was under the command of Lieutenant-Admiral Maarten Tromp who had 73 warships at his disposal. He safely escorted the convoy through the most dangerous parts of the English Channel by late November. Instead of returning home, Tromp ordered his captains to hunt down the remaining English ships. Blake severely underestimated his enemy and miscalculated the strength of their navy. ••••• The Battle of Dungeness began in the afternoon on December 10. The weather ended up playing a pivotal role in the outcome. The winds conveniently blew Blake’s vanguard directly into the Dutch navy before he was able to confirm the number of their ships. Many of the English ships were in fact impressed merchant vessels that were reluctant to enter the fray. By the end of the day, Tromp succeeded in capturing three boats and sinking two, while only losing one of his own. According to legend, he attached a broom to his mast signaling he had swept the sea clean of his enemies. English reinforcements returned by the following February and quickly re-established control of the Channel. It was once again closed off to Dutch trading.
