This Day In History


November 26, 1922 - Egypt -- King Tut's Tomb
Sunday, 1922 : The British Lord Carnarvon and the archaeologist Howard Carter enter King Tut's tomb which had been buried by the sands of the Egyptian desert for thousands of years before its discovery by Carter a few days before, He had waited until his partner Lord Carnarvon could fly from England to enter. Many believe to this day that King Tut's tomb is the greatest archaeological discovery of our time as it had not been discovered earlier as many tombs has and plundered of it's fantastic treasures. Both of these great men died within 7 months of entering the Tomb which helped to perpetuate the myth of the ( Mummy's Curse ) .

Young Resistance


It was the 1940s in Germany, and a group of young people could not stand by and witness the holocaust!  They mobilized in Munich, and informed Germans through the press.  They named themselves the White Rose!  They wrote pamphlets telling the people of Germany what was happening!  They sadly paid with their lives and were caught in their conquest! 


They were caught by their janitor at their school who threw their pamphlets over the balcony!

This story is a great reminder that young people can make  a difference, and how often do young people stand up against evil?
