The Rize of the Swatzika
The Rize of the Swatzika When first seeing this somewhat controversial image, dozens upon dozens of thoughts may flood the mind but are we really looking at? The Swastika as we may know it in Western society has in fact been pulled very far from its original context. Swastika in its native tongue, Sanskrit, is pronounced ?swastika? and which translates best to ?wellbeing, good fortune and luck.?

Hitler and Stalin: the rise to power During the period leading up to World War II, there were two men who were on opposing sides, yet had many traits that made them much alike. One of these men was someone who?s name is instantly recognizable to almost anyone today--Adolf Hitler. The other man was a major player in world history as well, but his name is not so infamous--Joseph Stalin. These men were each triumphant in their rise to power in their countries and they were very comparable in the wa

The Causes Of World War I
The Causes of World War I The First World War had many causes; the historians probably have not yet discovered and discussed all of them so there might be more causes than what we know now. The spark of the Great War was the assassination of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, and his wife by a Serbian nationalist on the morning of June 28, 1914, while traveling in a motorcade through Sarajevo, the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
