Today’s Pivotal Person is Helmut Hirsch, the man who tried to blow up the Nazi Headquarters building in Nuremberg in December 1936.
On the 15th September 1935 a new set of laws was introduced by Hitler’s Third Reich. The Nuremberg Laws forbade marriage between Jews and Germans, and later expanded to restrict the basic human rights of Romanis, Black people, and eventually disabled people and homosexuals. Helmut Hirsch, a young German Jew from Stuttgart was nineteen at the time, and s a result of the new laws which now excluded Jews from German universities, he instead moved to Prague, the capital of what was then Czechoslovakia, one of last few remaining democracies in Europe at the time. He enrolled at the German Institute of Technology there, where he put the horrible thoughts of what was happening back home in his native country to the back of his mind, and began studying to become an architect.
It didn’t take long however for Hirsch to become involved in an anti-fascist resistance group called the Black Front that was building up in Prague, mostly made up of anti-Hitler German expatriates. By 1936 Hirsch’s family left Germany and moved to join Helmut in the relative safety of Prague, where his sister Kate also went to university. By this point Hirsch and his fellow members of the Black Front had firmly come to the conclusion that if Europe was to be saved from the horrors of fascism then Hitler must die. They had become deeply embroiled in a plot to destroy the Nazi party Headquarters in Nuremberg, hopefully with him inside it.
On December 20th 1936, Hirsch returned across the border to Germany, carrying a genuine travel permit obtained on the false premise that he was going to be visiting his mother who he claimed was ill. Unfortunately for Hirsch, the German authorities knew that his family had already moved to Prague and had themselves been watching him for months, but were unable to arrest him on Czech soil. The agents allowed him through, and watched as he checked into the Hotel Pelikan, just across the road from the railway station.
In the early hours of 21st December, Gestapo agents slipped into his hotel room ... (full article in bio)

Nurse Akulova (Акулова) in 1942. She was awarded for medical service in combat. (Under her pic i found this- „People didn't smile for pictures. In Russia smiling without a reason is a sign of weak mind.“ - What you think? It's truth? Or false?) #womeninwar #ladiesinthewar #warladies #worldwar2 #wwii #ww2 #secondworldwar #worldwarii #worldwartwo #history #military #wartime #warpic #womeninarmy #womenhistory #russiangirl #historypassion #historytime #война #soviets #redarmy #СоветскийСоюз #sovietunion #краснаяармия #russianarmy #ВОB #Руссия #worldwar2incolor

Often dramatized and is very well known, I'm going to go in depth on the KV-2. The Winter war was going well for the new KV-1. The only problem was it's capabilities in dealing with the concrete bunkers in Mannerheim. The General Staff decided to keep the KV-2 hull instead of making a new SPG. It had a huge turret in accessible by ladder to encase the 152mm gun breach. There was 2 models, early model with more angled turret, and later one without and had hatch in back for easy ammo storage.It was basically already battle proven when introduced and had extremely effective armor especially early war. Only 203 were made as the factories that made it were forced eastward by the Germans. Not really effective against tanks, but that's not what it was made for. It did its duty as a scary weapon for fortified positions and infantry. Comment below on this very stronk tank!

The kids loved exploring all the nooks and crannies at Fort Scratchley yesterday. Positioned on top of a hill overlooking Nobbys Beach, it was a prime spot for defending the city of Newcastle. Although it was built in 1882 the guns weren't fired in defence until the 8th of June 1942 during an attack by a Japanese Submarine. This is an awesome place to explore with great views of the city and the best thing is that it is Free!!!

Today’s Pivotal Person is Arwald, the last pagan king to rule in England until the coming of the Vikings in the Ninth Century, and the last independent king of the Isle of Wight.
A new king came to the throne of the Anglo-Saxon realm of Wessex in 685. His name was Cædwalla; a West Saxon noble who had been exiled in his youth as a result of internal strife. Since that time he had spent much of his life living as an outlaw in the lawless wild woodlands between Sussex and Wessex, finally descending upon the South Saxons of Sussex in the early 680s, before returning home to claim the kingdom of Wessex. He was a warlord, a battle hardened warrior king who had spent his entire lifetime gathering other veteran warriors around himself in order to gain power by force, and as soon as he had successfully claimed the throne of Wessex he moved south, into lands largely unknown to the other Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms, to the mysterious island which lay off the south coast then known as Whitwara. We know it under a different name. The Isle of Wight.
Within months of his taking the throne, Cædwalla’s warriors arrived on the island, ravaging the countryside and massacring the still pagan inhabitants of the island. It was a holy war, of Christian against pagan, and before long, the last king of the island sallied forth with his own warriors for one final stand against the onslaught from the mainland. His name was Arwald, and according to Bede, he was the last independent king of the Isle of Wight.
The island had first been colonised by Jutish settlers in the early Sixth century, who presumably replaced the existing Romano-Britonic population that had lived there before the coming of the Anglo-Saxons. By the time of Cædwalla, a thriving kingdom had been long established upon the island. Although he wasn’t baptised until weeks before his death, like most kings of the period, Cædwalla was a Christian, and as such in order to gain the throne of Wessex he had likely had to make certain commitments to the church. One of these commitments was a promise to grant the church one quarter of the island of Wight after its conquest, and also to convert its (full article in bio)

An underwater M42 Duster... not sure how it got there, but it's stuck in the Red Sea near Jordan. Comment below what you think happened and why?

#repost @ladies.in.war Women SS camp guards, supervised by British soldiers, remove victims of Bergen-Belsen concentrational camp from lorries and carry them to the mass grave (1945). In September 1939, the Wehrmacht began using the Bergen-Belsen as a prisoner of war (POW) camp. In August 1944, a new section was created and this became the so-called "women's camp". By November 1944 this camp received around 9,000 women and young girls. Most of those who were able to work stayed only for a short while and were then sent on to other concentration camps or slave-labour camps. The first women interned there were Poles, others were Jewish women from Poland or Hungary, transferred from Auschwitz.
The camp was liberated on April 15, 1945, by the British 11th Armoured Division. The soldiers discovered approximately 60,000 prisoners inside, most of them half-starved and seriously ill, and another 13,000 corpses lying around the camp unburied.
From 1941 to 1945, almost 20,000 Soviet prisoners of war and a further 50,000 inmates died there. Inmates were Jews, Poles, Soviets, Dutch, Czechoslovaks, German and Austrians.
