Today in History

Postby ramsej84 » Tue Oct 13, 2015 4:31 pm

As you may have noticed I am very fond of history (If I am not mistaken #12 is a history teacher 8) )

I am suggesting that you post here what you remember from your countries history.

I am already breaking the rule cause am not posting anything to do with Malta but...

13.10.1307 : the Knights Templars were arrested by Philip IV King of France after they were falsely accused of blasphemy, and of kissing each other on every initiation; just for your own knowledge the King was in huge dept with the knights so you can come to your conclusions to why he invented such stories on their behalf. The majority of the knights were killed at the stake. The Grand Master cursed the King and the Pope as while he was dying he said that in one years time both the Pope and the King will be summoned before God to pay for this grave crime.

another event was that in 1792 President George Washington laid the cornerstone for the White House.

Today is the 67th birthday of the late musician Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. He is known as the king of Qawwali (a type of classical Indian music) and revolutionized the genre forever. His Qawwalis are so much different from what the norm was before him.

A Qawwali mixed with Western music


Here is a more classical one:

I like your idea however I think that we can have that on a separate thread.

1895-10-13, Birth of Kurt Schumacher in Kulm, Germany.

Kurt Ernst Carl Schumacher, German social democratic politician, who served as chairman of the Social Democratic Party of Germany from 1946 and was the first Leader of the Opposition in the West German Bundestag from 1949 until his death. An opponent of Chancellor Konrad Adenauer's government, but an even stronger opponent of the East German Socialist Unity Party and communism in general, he was one of the founding fathers of post-war German democracy. He was also a noted opponent of the far-right and the far-left, i.e. the Nazi Party and the Communist Party of Germany, during the Weimar Republic, and is famous for his description of the communists as "red-painted Nazis." He spent over ten years in Nazi concentration camps, where he was severely mistreated.

October 14, 1894

Birth of Heinrich Lübke in Enkhausen, Germany. He would grow up to be the president of the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany at that time). He studied economics and law at the universities in Berlin and Münster. He entered politics in 1931. In 1933 he was removed from all offices and sent to prison by the Nazis. In 1945 he reentered politics within the CDU party. He was very interested in agricultural policy and served in several posts with responsibility for that area. From 1959-1969 he served as President of the Federal Republic of Germany. (Remember that the President of Germany is a different office than that of the Chancellor. It is the Chancellor who is the head of government. During the time that Luebke was President, the chancellors were Konrad Adenauer, Ludwig Erhard and Kurt Georg Kiessinger.)

Interesting fact... never was aware about this...
NO LEFT AND RIGHT SHOE [source]

Up to the early 19th century, shoes were absolute ‘straights’ since there was no idea about having a left and right shoe. There were two
widths to choose from: the slim shoe and the fat shoe. So, if one could afford to buy a pair, it was only a matter of finding a way to get used to the new shoes.

The same issue existed in armour as it can be noted from this pair of finely moulded jambes, or greaves, which date to c. 1525. Its various borders are decorated with narrow bands of etched acanthus leaves, all gilded, the remaining surface being russeted.

(Note: This item forms part of the collection of the Palace Armoury. Photo was taken prior to restoration of the object.)

(Reference: Armoury of the Knights (2003) by Stephen C Spiteri)

today in 1944 Anne Frank together with her family were taken to Bergen Belsen concentration camp.
Frank aspired to become a journalist, writing in her diary on Wednesday, 5 April 1944:

I finally realized that I must do my schoolwork to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write ..., but it remains to be seen whether I really have talent ...

And if I don't have the talent to write books or newspaper articles, I can always write for myself. But I want to achieve more than that. I can't imagine living like Mother, Mrs. van Daan and all the women who go about their work and are then forgotten. I need to have something besides a husband and children to devote myself to! ...

I want to be useful or bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death! And that's why I'm so grateful to God for having given me this gift, which I can use to develop myself and to express all that's inside me!

When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer?

— Anne Frank[35]
She continued writing regularly until her last entry of 1 August 1944. [source]
