    Although the day has already changed in Europe,

    here it is the last 20 minutes of the 100th anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie in Sarajevo in 1914. While not the cause, it was the precipitating event for WWI. While I don't care much about Hapsburg nobles, I think the anniversary...

    I read a news report yesterday about members of

    ISIS destroying historic artifacts and places in Iraq. Groups like ISIS destroy these things because they are not interested in real truth. The "truth" - for ISIS, for Hitler, for the Taliban and tyrants both dead and alive - is in the lies they invent to serve their agendas...

    I think good historical research is sometimes

    undermined by the modern media. So many so-called history programmes like to attract audiences with sensational theories and alleged discoveries. When it's subsequently shown that it's mostly nonsense, they don't have to give back the money they made, so they can't lose. In fact...

    Why History?

    I was once asked why I loved history so much; after all, what practical purpose did it serve?  A question of this nature, it seems to me, is largely self-referential, already containing, in an age-old rhetorical fashion, its own answer. What practical use is history?  ...

    This is Leutnant (Lieutenant) Hugo Gutmann.

    He was Hitler's officer during their service in the First World War. Ironically, Hitler's favourite medal which he always wore, the iron cross, was given to him by his Jewish officer.

    What I love about history is

    that there is so much to it. It is years and years full of interesting people, facts, ideas and beliefs. Some were amazing, some not so much. The only thing we can do is to learn from our past and shape the future.
