NUCLEAR FRONTIER
If this is the new Earth we’ll just stick with the old one.

Today in 1957 in the Soviet Union, this photo was shot of an underwater nuclear detonation at the Novaya Zemlya Test Site, located on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. Novaya Zemlya means “new earth” in Russian, but might as well mean “nuclear earth,” considering 224 tests were conducted on the islands amounting to 265 megatons of TNT. To put that in perspective, all the explosives used during World War II, including the two nuclear bombs the U.S. dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, amounted to only two megatons.

NAGASAKI LEAFLET
Rare piece of WWII memorabilia.

I thought this might be up your alley, since you post nuclear explosions and cold war stuff. It’s a leaflet dropped on Nagasaki during WWII. I believe we had already hit Hiroshima at this point, and this leaflet is warning the people of Nagasaki that they’re next and had better get out of the city. I thought this might be valuable, but then I saw that a lot of websites had some. And I even saw one on Ebay. I imagine U.S. personnel must have kept these as souvenirs, because I doubt any survived from Nagasaki. Interesting thought. Anyway, I thought you might find this interesting. Nice website.

Thanks, D. These are an awesome share. Your scans were huge, but the horizontal orientation of the art in our narrow column crunched the images down pretty small. So, we’ve reposted these vertically for people who want to get a slightly better look. Just drag or save to your desktop and rotate the images.

1975—Haile Selassie I Dies
Haile Selassie I, former Emperor of the Kingdom of Ethiopia, dies of respiratory failure. Selassie was most famous for his landmark speech before the League of Nations in 1936, in which he pleaded for help against an Italian invasion, but to no avail. He warned that fascist aggression would not end with Ethiopia. His words, "It is us today; it will be you tomorrow," turn out to be prophetic when Germany's fascists later spark World War II.

1944—Vive la France
With the surrender of the last occupying German garrison, Paris is liberated from Nazi occupation by Allied troops after six days of fighting. The city had been administered by Nazi Germany since the Second Compiègne armistice in June 1940 when Germany occupied the north and west of France and when the Vichy regime was created in the city of Vichy in central France.
