On Sept. 1, 1939, one week after Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union signed a non-aggression pact, more than a million German troops—along with 50,000 Slovakian soldiers—invaded Poland. Two weeks later, a half-million Russian troops attacked Poland from the east. After years of vague rumblings, explicit threats and open conjecture about the likelihood of a global conflict—in Europe, the Pacific and beyond—the Second World War had begun.

World War I started today 100 years ago with the assassination of this man, Archduke Franz Ferdinand. Let's never forget.
El 28 de junio de 1914, aproximadamente a las 11 de la mañana, Francisco Fernando, heredero al trono austro-húngaro y su esposa fueron asesinados en Sarajevo, capital de la provincia austro-húngara de Bosnia-Herzegovina, por Gavrilo Princip, extremista serbio y uno de los varios asesinos controlados por Mano Negra, grupo terrorista serbio. El acontecimiento, conocido como el Asesinato de Sarajevo, fue uno de los desencadenantes de la Primera Guerra Mundial.
On June 28, 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand (soon to be Austria's King) and his wife were assassinated in Sarajevo by a Serbian nationalist Gavrilo Princip who was a part of the Black Hand. Because the assassin was Serbian, Austria-Hungary, in retaliation, declared war on Serbia. This led to the Central Powers (including Germany) joining on Austria’s side, and the Allied powers like Britain and France joining on Serbia’s side.

E. Pluribus Unum (from many, one)
Politics, God, Atheist Truths, American History, Pluribus Unum, Plaque, Interesting, Mottos, Found Fathers
The original motto of the United States was secular. "E Pluribus Unum" is Latin for "One from many" or "One from many parts." It refers to the welding of a single federal state from a group of individual political units -- originally colonies and now states. On 1776-JUL-4, Congress appointed John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson to prepare a design for the Great Seal of the United States. The first design, submitted to Congress on 1776-AUG-10 used the motto "E Pluribus Unum." It was rejected. Five other designs also failed to meet with Congress' approval during the next five years. In 1782, Congress asked Mr. Thomson, Secretary of Congress, to complete the project. Thomson, along with a friend named Barton, produced a design that was accepted by Congress on 1782-JUN-10. It included an eagle with a heart-shaped shield, holding arrows and an olive branch in its claws. The motto "E Pluribus Unum" appeared on a scroll held in its beak. The seal was first used on 1782-SEP-16. It was first used on some federal coins in 1795. 1
The motto "in God we Trust" was not adopted by our founding fathers, but by Congress in 1956 in response to fears of "godless" Communism. Our original motto (E Pluribus Unum) adopted in 1782, means "out of many, one", and reflected our heritage of diversity and tolerance.
Interesting. Much like the 1950's addition of the words "Under God" to the pledge...

The villa in which the Wannsee Conference took place in Berlin

Nazi officials met to discuss the details of the "Final Solution" of the "Jewish question" on January 20, 1942 at the Wannsee Conference. Heydrich proposed simply transporting Jews from every corner of Europe to concentration camps in Poland and working them to death. Although the word "extermination" was never uttered during the meeting, the implication was clear -- anyone who survived the egregious conditions of a work camp would be "treated accordingly."
