Remembering WWII: Living History, Education & Honor (RWWII) , as one of our partners for WWII Heritage Days, will be providing a USO style show both days at the event. Additionally, the members of the group will be participating as military & civilian reenactors, showcasing historical vehicles & displays, and interacting with the public & sharing historical information. RWWII began as a grassroots effort to provide an event where those within their local community in Linden, TN could interact with the historical aspects of WWII and meet, honor, and hear the stories of WWII Veterans living in their own neighborhoods. From a small gathering in 2012, it grew almost overnight to one of the premier hands-on living history events in the south, transforming an entire downtown into the 1940s for one weekend a year, with their mission being 3 fold: Living History, Education, & Honor. RWWII is comprised of many families and individuals who volunteer their time throughout the year, appearing within their community and events across the Southeast in support of various historical and veteran based events. Be sure to leave time in your schedule to check out their USO show on the stage in the Dixie Wing hangar on both Saturday and Sunday of WWII Heritage Days! WWII Heritage Days, April 27 & 28, 9am - 4pm, Atlanta Regional Airport - Falcon Field, wwiidays.org. Photo courtesy of RWWII, at WWII Heritage Days. @rememberingwwii @twooldbeans

“Enemy on Island, Situation in doubt.” . . On 8 December, 1941, the Japanese attacked Wake Island, a tiny strategic island in the Pacific. At noon, the Japanese navy crashed the beaches with 2,500 personnel. They had no plan to take prisoners. . In the harrowing 15 days that followed, 470 Gallant marines, 1100 civilians, 68 U.S Navy, and 5 U.S Army personnel fought to viciously defend freedom and the American way of life. . Prior to its capture by the Japanese on 23 Dec, Marine Capt Winfield Cunningham, the Atoll commander, sent this haunting transmission to comrades in Hawaii during the Invasion. No reinforcements ever arrived. . Like and follow to hear the rest of this humbling history. Thanks for your support. . . . . .

La princesa Noor-un-Nisa Inayat Khan (1914-1944). Criada en Gran Bretaña y Francia, descendiente de la realeza india. . La bilingüe Noor Inayat Khan fue reclutada por la élite del Ejecutivo de Operaciones Especiales (SOE) en 1942 para trabajar en París como operadora de radio. Los registros de los archivos nacionales muestran que fue la primera mujer operadora inalámbrica enviada a la Francia ocupada por los nazis durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Después de evadir la captura durante tres meses, la Gestapo alemana la encarceló en el campo de concentración de Dachau en 1944, fue torturada y posteriormente asesinada. Su última palabra, pronunciada cuando el pelotón de fusilamiento alemán alzó sus armas, fue simple. "Liberté". . Publicada en @womenofyesteryear .

Iwo Jima and Okinawa were the final two islands on the way to Japan’s mainland, and two of the bloodiest battles in the Pacific theater. Desperate fighting underscored the implacable fervor of the enemy—Japanese soldiers willing to resist to the last man, motivated by their government’s urging: “one hundred million will die together.”

The year was 1944, and Dany's town had been under Nazi rule for four years. As the US servicemen landed on France’s Utah Beach and streamed through Ste. Marie du Mont, many stooped to give her candy, gum, and chocolat — delights the five-year-old had never before experienced. .

The Kotwica ([kɔtˈfit͡sa]; Polish for "Anchor") was a World War II emblem of the Polish Underground State and Armia Krajowa (Home Army, or AK). It was created in 1942 by members of the AK Wawer Minor sabotage unit, as an easily usable emblem for the Polish struggle to regain independence. The initial meaning of the initials PW was Pomścimy Wawer ("We shall avenge Wawer"). This was a reference to the Wawer massacre (26–27 December 1939), which was considered to be one of the first large scale massacres of Polish civilians by German troops in occupied Poland. At first, Polish scouts from sabotage groups painted the whole phrase upon walls. However, it was soon abbreviated to the letters PW, which over time came to symbolise the phrase Polska Walcząca ("Fighting Poland"). Early in 1942, the AK organised a contest to design an emblem to represent the resistance movement, and the winning design (pictured) by Anna Smoleńska, a member of the Gray Ranks who herself participated in minor sabotage operations, combined the letters P and W into the Kotwica. Smoleńska was arrested by the Gestapo in November 1942 and died in Auschwitz in March 1943,at the age of twenty-three. (From Wikipedia)

Holodomor merupakan genosida yang dilakukan oleh pemerintah Uni Soviet pada masa kepemimpinan Joseph Stalin(1920-1953) terhadap penduduk Ukraina yang mayoritas bekerja sebagai petani. Dimana pada saat itu Ukraina merupakan wilayah bagian dari Republik Uni Soviet dan bekerja untuk pemerintahan Uni Soviet. Pada tahun 1932 Pemerintahan Stalin mengeluarkan kebijakan memaksa agar para petani di Ukraina mempercepat hasil produksi pertanian dan menyerahkan seluruh hasil pertanian juga bahan pangan lainnya kepada pemerintah Uni Soviet. Akibatnya sebanyak 25.000 orang penduduk Ukraina meninggal setiap harinya karena kelaparan. Hanya dalam kurun waktu satu tahun (1932-1933 ) jumlah korban diperkirakan mencapai 7 juta jiwa. Pakar sejarah banyak berpendapat, faktor dari kebijakan yang dilakukan Stalin merupakan sebuah kesengajaan darinya, agar memutuskan semangat para pejuang Ukraina pada saat itu. peristiwa yg sengaja ditutup-tutupi oleh pemerintah Uni Soviet hingga Russia sekarang, sehingga banyak yang kurang mengetahui mengenai peristiwa ini. Padahal jumlah korban melebihi jumlah dari korban holocaust, genosida yang dilakukan oleh rezim nazi jerman terhadap kematian 6 juta kaum Yahudi di Eropa pasca perang dunia 2 (1939-1945). . .

I cleaned up some old scrap metal around my shed yesterday and this morning went to my local scrap yard to cash it in. They had this sitting in the office. Somebody brought this in for scrap metal. It’s an original rare WWII German Air Force Single Decal helmet. I bough it from the scrap yard. This is a great piece of WWII history that an American GI brought home as a war souvenir trophy and it ended up in a scrap pile in Reading, PA.

Princess Noor-un-Nisa Inayat Khan (1914-1944). Raised in Britain and France and a descendant of Indian royalty, bilingual Noor Inayat Khan was recruited by the elite Special Operations Executive (SOE) in 1942 to work in Paris as a radio operator. Records from the national archives show she was the first female wireless operator sent to Nazi-occupied France during World War II. After evading capture for three months, the spy was imprisoned, tortured and eventually shot by the German Gestapo at Dachau concentration camp in 1944. Her final word - uttered as the German firing squad raised their weapons - was simple. "Liberte". .

In June 1940, Dany Patrix’s father Paul was serving in the French Navy when he was abruptly ordered to evacuate, leaving his family behind without the chance to bid farewell. Over the following months, he could only write letters to them in a journal, not knowing if he would ever see them again. We shared one of his first letters last week, and the following is an entry he wrote a few days later.⠀ ⠀ “June 21, 1940⠀ ⠀ My darling wife,⠀ ⠀ Ongoing tribulations, we disembark at midnight on a large tug taking us to Plymouth. We are exhausted on the train, everyone falls asleep and yet my wife, before sleeping I want to tell you my adventures in case I do not come back, my notebook could touch you. ⠀ ⠀ My wife, my little ones, I’ll say goodbye, see you tomorrow. Kisses to you. Paul.”⠀ .⠀ Normandystories.com⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀

Book Goals 2019 ●14● WWII books induce the urge to read more WWII books. This was such a quick read. The innocence of a nine year old boy who can't even pronounce Auschwitz and Führer right (both words are deadly) ending up being best friends with a Jewish boy. The Boy in The Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne makes us wonder where humanity went wrong? (Or as I think humans at the first place are WRONG to EXIST!)

🇯🇵Hiroo Onoda🇯🇵 was born on March 19, 1922 in Kainan, in the Empire of Japan. Not much is known about his life growing up, but when he was 17 years old, he went to work for the Tajima Yoko trading company in Wuhan, China (which was occupied by Japan at the time in WW2). The following year, he was conscripted into the Imperial Japanese Army Infantry. He was trained the 'Nakano School,' where he became an intelligence officer and was taught the art of guerilla warfare. In late 1944 he was sent to Lubang Island, in the Japanese-occupied Phillipines, and was ordered to do anything in his record to resist the growing American presence on the archipelago. When he landed on the island, Onoda joined forces with a group of Japanese soldiers who had been sent there previously. The officers in the group outranked Onoda and prevented him from carrying out his assignment, which made it easier for United States and Philippine forces to take the island when they landed on February 28, 1945. Within a short time of the landing, all but Onoda and 3 other soldiers had either died or surrendered. Onoda, who had been promoted to lieutenant, ordered the men to take to the hills; his education in guerilla warfare was about to come in handy. Onoda, alongside his comrades Yūichi Akatsu, Shōichi Shimada and Kinshichi Kozuka, would hide in the jungle, raiding Filipino towns and villages and attacking local police. In October 1945, thery had discovered a leaflet dropped to them by the Allies, explaining that Japan had surrendered and the war was over. However this did not make any sense to the Japanese holdouts, who would have had no idea about the atomic weapons dropped on their country. The only explanation was that the US and UK invaded Japan and toppled the government, but this too would have been impossible to achieve by October. [continued in the comments]

Strada Delle 52 Gallerie (52 Tunnels), Valli del Pasubio, Italy 🇮🇹 Incredibly remarkable hike with some of the most gorgeous views I've ever seen. I even saw some wildlife, as there was a mountain goat (or some kind a goat) above the trail. I had to stop recording halfway through because my phone was about to die and I definitely needed the flashlight in certain parts of the trail. The entire trail is well laid out. They were a couple of times I wasn't certain where to go immediately, but after looking for a couple seconds, it became obvious. There is a lot of loose rocks and uneven terrain. There were a couple of older hikers that turned around, saying that it was too much for their knees and ankles. At the turnaround point there is a great café where you can stop and relax before turning around. Nothing like having a beer at what seems like the top of the world. Definitely recommend for everyone.
