Today In History October 1

History is not just a genuinely occurring intersection of fact, choice, and expectation. A look at the Roman Tacitus and the Byzantine Procopius, two very different historians, reveals the complexity and difficulty of the study of the past. At least three different approaches to history are part of this: recalling or restoring or even inventing. Everyone is somehow imperfect. For example, no historical or historical source exposes the complete and uncoated facts. Furthermore, archaeology or historical research does not disclose evidence without context and it is often difficult to define the significance of the recovered data. Moreover, it is difficult to prove that certain supposed “history” was invented. At the same time, they also tell us a great deal about the values and dreams of society.

Let’s have a look at today’s history:

1946: Germany War Crimes

Twelve high ranking Nazis, including Joachim von Ribbentrop, Nazi Minister of Foreign Affairs, was sentenced to death in Nuremberg by the International War Crimes Tribunal. The Gestapo Member and Chief of the German air force, Hermann Goering. Inner Secretary Wilhelm Frick. Seven others were jailed for ten years to life, including Rudolf Hess, the former deputy to Adolf Hitler. Three others were acquitted.

1921: Ireland Negotiations

The talks between Eamonn De Valera (Sinn Feine) and Lloyd George about Ireland’s future are to commence in London again. Britain consistently said they prefer to fight Ireland rather than grant Ireland complete independence, as Great Britain is not the British Kingdom yet vulnerable to Ireland. Both sides will prefer a compromise rather than a war so that this meeting will have a solution in which everybody is pleased.

1946: UK Mensa Created

Mensa, which is not political and without social distinction (racial, religious, etc.) is established in the renowned high IQ society. The business is founded by Roland Berrill and Dr. Lancelot Ware, with a high IO ranking of over 98 percentiles as the only membership qualification, and a membership of more than 100,000 worldwide. Mensa has drawn unexpected members over the years, including boxers, actors, and actresses, writers, politicians, and inventors.
