Successor and deputy to Adolf Hitler

Hermann Göring, also known as “Der Dicke” because of his stocky build, was a notorious Nazi leader. During the First World War, he was a celebrated fighter pilot. When the Nazis came to power, Göring became Commander-in-Chief of the Luftwaffe. In 1939, Adolf Hitler appointed him as his successor and deputy.

His father, Ernst Heinrich Göring (1838–1913), was a lawyer, governor…

The last Egyptian pharaoh was of Macedonian decent

There is a lot of misunderstanding about the color of Cleopatra’s skin. For many years it was thought that she was a white woman since that’s how she was portrayed in movies and books.

Now, there are a lot of people who think that Cleopatra was a black woman. Because she was an ‘African’ woman, she would have had an African sister or some other vague theories.

But let’s talk about her real descendance.

There were several queens named Cleopatras that ruled ‘ancient’ Egypt, but Cleopatra VII was the most famous one. …

The island of death…

You might have heard of the plague and how many deaths it caused during the dark ages. If you do, you also might have heard of this spooky haunted island called Poveglia, where people who had the plague were put to death.

At first glance, Poveglia looks like a private island owned by a wealthy businessman. Nothing is less true. The island has a bizarrely dark history, which goes back far in time. Let’s take a look at the last 500 years to unravel its history.

The Origin and Its Location

The island of Poveglia is located between Venice and Lido in the Venetian Lagoon…

What is right? And what is wrong?

Have you ever looked at this world or even your own life and thought: “I am right and they are wrong” even though everybody else agrees about the same narrative.

Let me give you an example. When I was in kindergarten, my teacher asked us all the questions: “What sound does a doorbell make?” The whole class answered with: “Ding-Dong.”

I didn’t.

The answer…

Losing a dear friend is always tough

In March of last year, my girlfriend and I bought the sweetest little creature that has ever walked the earth. A bunny named Billy, but after only a couple of hours, we renamed him Snoeffie, which we thought suited him better.

I loved him the moment that I saw his fluffy little bunny body. But he passed away this month.
