Virtually Visit Anne Frank’s childhood home on Google Arts and Culture

“I hope I can entrust you with everything that I haven't been able to share with anyone, and I hope you will be a great support to me." These are the first words Anne Frank wrote in the diary she received on her thirteenth birthday. Three weeks later, the Frank family went into hiding. Since then, the story of Anne has moved people across the globe who want to learn more about her life.

Google Arts & Culture has worked with the Anne Frank House to shed a light on Anne’s life at Merwedeplein 37-2 in Amsterdam, where her family lived before they went into hiding. In honor of what would have been her 90th birthday, you can explore an online exhibit and indoor Street View imagery of Anne’s childhood home. For the first time it will be possible to view all rooms of the flat to get a unique insight into Anne Frank's home that has been restored to its original 1930s style, including the bedroom that she shared with her sister Margot.

The virtual visit is a great lasti... Show more...


Navajo Code Talkers

World War II Fact Sheet

Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Peleliu, Iwo Jima: the Navajo code talkers took part in every assault the U.S. Marines conducted in the Pacific from 1942 to 1945. They served in all six Marine divisions, Marine Raider battalions and Marine parachute units, transmitting messages by telephone and radio in their native language a code that the Japanese never broke.

The idea to use Navajo for secure communications came from Philip Johnston, the son of a missionary to the Navajos and one of the few non-Navajos who spoke their language fluently. Johnston, reared on the Navajo reservation, was a World War I veteran who knew of the military's search for a code that would withstand all attempts to de... Show more...

From the Musée Mémorial in Bayeux, France: 1944 Bataille de Normandie

I found this photo to be particularly poignant and moving.

I gazed a long time at this photo and wished I knew the backstory behind it.

Who are the people in it? Where was it taken? Who took the photo, etc. Who is the dead soldier?
As I studied this photo, I noticed the footwear of the elderly woman and kneeling gentleman. Both appear to be wearing wooden shoes. Could this photo have been taken in Holland? Belgium?
And why was the figure standing to the right of the photo airbrushed/scratched out?

@appaloosa A few years back, when I stayed at a coastal B&B in the little town of Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer in Normandy, FR; one of the most poignant conversations I remember, was with an older gentleman from Belgium.

As we both stood by the seawall gazing out over sand and shore, he told me: being here today and seeing people, tourists, (and even locals) playing, sunbathing, swimming, cavorting, etc, on the clean sand of this historic beach felt oddly surreal and melancholy. If it weren’t for the conspicuous monuments and signage here and there, you’d never suspect this was a place of carnage, blood, and horror on that fateful day, so many years ago.

This day in #history

Visual artist Andy Moss of the Sand In Your Eye collective, created "The Fallen Project" - a visual representation of the thousands of lives lost (allies, civilians, & German forces) during the D-day Normandy assault. Together with local citizens from the Normandy coast of Arromanches and volunteers, they drew 9000 people in the sand.

The objective was to enable onlookers, tourists, visitors and citizens alike to visualize what the actual human loss was like.

What You Should Know About The Origins Of Bitcoin

You probably think you know a lot about Bitcoin, you know what it is, you sort of know how it works and you certainly know what it’s worth, or at least, you know what your Bitcoin is worth,ask yourself this question though, how much do you know about Bitcoins origins and where all of this actually came from?

I love the story Kropotkin told of when they were in Switzerland, (though him and Bakunin never met). Some young men were talking disrespectfully about the young women.

One of the older women said, “I wish Mikhail was here to hear you talk like that” and the young men shut up.

Kropotkin remarked it was the only time he ever heard an Anarchist theoretician being trotted as out as the authority. ^^

On this day, 31 May 1831, the Merthyr Tydfil uprising was sparked when bailiffs from the Court of Requests attempted to seize goods from the home of Lewis Lewis, known as Lewsyn yr Heliwr (Lewis the Huntsman).

Lewis refused to let them in, and with his neighbours managed to prevent them from entering his home. The following day a demonstration by ironworkers began ransacking the houses of bailiffs and returning property to the original owners. The rebellion spread and lasted until mid-June.

On this day, 29 May 1830, Louise Michel, Paris Communard, anarchist and French national hero at the time, was born.

She led an absolutely fascinating life. Forced to hand herself in following the Paris commune when authorities threatened to murder her mother, she was charged with trying to overthrow the government, encouraging citizens to arm themselves, possession and use of weapons, wearing a military uniform, planning to assassinate hostages and more, and was sentenced to life time deportation to the prison colony of New Caledonia. There she supported the anti-colonial uprising of the indigenous people, and returned when the communards were pardoned nearly 7 years later.

She was subsequently jailed repeatedly and survived an assassination attempt when she was shot in the head.

This is a full book-length biography of her incredible life: https://libcom.org/history/louise-michel-edith-thomas

I would add that marxist ideology was designed by German-born Karl Marx and Marxist USSR was ruled by Western agents:

When someone says “Free Tibet”, he wants the absolute power of lamas to be in this region again. 80 years ago, when the power of the Dalai Lama was unlimited in Tibet there were about 2,000 taxes.
