Construction on the three-story, 23-room Queen Anne style Becker Mansion began in 1855, and was completed many years later. The former family home is not only home to the Seneca Falls Historical Society, but also to three ghosts: the original owner who plays tricks on staff members, a former nanny, and a wailing Irish girl.

A visit to the Tushanwan Museum in Xujiahui, a former orphanage and sort of arts training center run by the Jesuits, in which orphans learned Christianity and crafts including wood carving, painting, metallurgy, stained glass making and more, with their works being shown in exhibitions and markets around the world, the proceeds paying for the orphanage and the children’s upbringing #history #chinesehistory #shanghaihistory #historicshanghai #catholichistory #catholicchurch #jesuit #jesuits #jesuithistory #jesuitorder #xujiahui #tushanwan #wanderlust #travelhistory #historytraveller #historygeek #instahistory #visitshanghai #expat #上海历史 #徐家汇

Cosa si prova entrando qui non si può descrivere. Te lo fanno studiare a scuola, ti fanno vedere foto, film, documentari e storie di deportati.
Ma quando entri di persona é diverso! Quando la guida ti parla di quello che è successo mostrandoti foto e reperti di chi li c'è stato davvero, ti sembra assurdo! Una vera e propria fabbrica della morte!
La grandezza di Birkenau ti lascia senza fiato. Conosciamo tutti la storia, conosciamo tutti cosa facevano, ma credo che capirlo fino in fondo sia difficile. Visitare questi luoghi ti lascia senza parole, con l'amarezza in bocca, tristezza e tante domande che non troveranno risposta.

2014 - Ricollegandoci all'appuntamento di sabato scorso.. rimaniamo sempre in terra tedesca..
Durante il nostro viaggio a Monaco decidemmo di andare a visitare il campo di concentramento e la prigione a #dachau .
Una fredda e gelida giornata di fine gennaio.. e non potevamo fare altro che pensare a quanto abbiano potuto soffrire quelle povere persone in quegli anni..
.

Il campo di concentramento di Dachau fu il primo campo di concentramento nazista, aperto il 22 marzo 1933 su iniziativa di Heinrich Himmler. 
Dachau servì da modello a tutti i campi di concentramento, di lavoro forzato e di sterminio nazisti eretti successivamente.
 Nel campo transitarono circa 200.000 persone e, secondo i dati del Museo di Dachau, 41.500 vi persero la vita. I deportati in arrivo dovevano percorrere una larga strada curata, la Lagerstrasse, al termine della quale era situato il cosiddetto Jourhaus, la "porta dell'inferno", il simmetrico edificio del comando di campo con una posticcia torretta di guardia sul tetto. Lo Jourhaus è attraversato nel mezzo da un grande arco d'ingresso al campo, completamente chiuso, a sua volta, da un esteso cancello in ferro battuto a due ante; al centro di esso un altro cancello più piccolo che reca la scritta: Arbeit macht frei. Con gli anni questo cinico slogan di Dachau, che significa "Il lavoro rende liberi", venne poi utilizzato in numerosi altri nuovi campi che via via si andavano costruendo, diventando il simbolo stesso della menzogna nazista sui lager. .

Pássaro Viajante número 12.494 encontrado no Porto,Portugal por Bia Lima.Novembro 2018
"Venho contar a história deste pássaro. Era Novembro dia 24, eu sou do Porto e o meu namorado de Óbidos, somos ambos escuteiros. Trouxe-o a passear e fi-lo atravessar a ponte para admirar a vista para a cidade. Enquanto passávamos a ponte vimos alguém a colocar algo preso em vários locais da ponte mas achamos que seria um jogo para crianças. Quando estávamos a regressar, a curiosidade foi mais forte e, ao olhar para este pássaro, decidimos abrir a mensagem e ver o que dizia. Foi uma agradável surpresa, parabéns pela iniciativa!!"

Tower of Belém, Lisbon, Portugal 🇵🇹 Belém had always been a place from where ships would depart and dock.

The most famous voyage undertaken from this port town might have been that of Vasco da Gama to India.

In the 15th century, King John II spoke about a tower to be built on the banks of River Tagus. His vision would only be turned into reality about a 100 years later.

King Manuel I commissioned a tower to be built at Belém in 1514 on the banks of the river Tagus.

It took them 6 years to built. The result was this beautiful tower which also played an important role in Portuguese Maritime activities.

It was because of its historical importance that UNESCO declared the Belém Tower to be a World Heritage Site in the 1980s.

The architecture of this tower is symbolic to Portugal in the 16th century. There is a mix of the military type architecture with two artillery levels with a typical medieval touch to it.

The Tower of Belém is a wonderful monument. I always assumed it was a fort ruin with just a Keep left behind. I’m glad I could explore one more historic monument in the world!

Thank You @zehrachhapiwala for suggesting it:) Do you have a historic destination you want me to explore? Comment it’s name below👇🏽

I had stumbled upon the great medieval Astronomical Clock in Prague at dusk when it just stroke the hour. 🏰💜
-
It was magical, and for that moment, the crowds seemed to all turn to watch the clock strike and listen to its chimes…the same sounds that those in fifteenth century Prague heard. The clock is a massive structure that is more than meets the eye. I wouldn’t have known that you could freely walk inside and explore its various clockwork elements that are now displayed museum-style. When I first stepped inside, I was greeted with the ornate ceiling mosaic artwork that lit up the entire area surrounding me (see photo 2). ✨This uniquely preserved landmark is a must-see in Prague and I was surprised at how complex and intricate each element was. Every part in the clockwork served a purpose then, and continues to today. 🌸🕊

There are so many Italian roads and streets named after Vittorio Emanuele and rightly so. He was a big part in shaping modern Italy!

The unification of Italy is a part of history that I have great interest in. Because of this, the Vittorio Emanuele II monument in Rome is my favourite building in all of Italy!

Do you have an all time favourite monument or building? Tell me about it and why it's so special to you! I'd love to know! ☺️

Castle in Torrechiara, Italy 🇮🇹 Pier Maria Rossi, a military leader in the Middle Ages built this castle in 1448 as a tribute to his forbidden lover, Bianca Pellegrini.

This castle is built in the most romantic Italian setting surrounded by vineyards.

It’s no wonder that the Torrechiara castle is a protected castle under the Ministry of Heritage and Culture.

Since this castle was built in the 15th century, you’ll find a mixture of the medieval and Renaissance architectural styles at play here.

The overall look of this castle is very much like a military stronghold but at the same time has a elegance to it.

There is a lot of history in the architecture of this castle. I’d love to visit to see it with my own eyes one day 🤞🏽 Which castle or palace have you added in your bucket list this January? Comment it’s name below

Transported back to Ancient Iraq through the astonishing sculptures of Assyria, one of the world’s great civilisations, Barnaby Rogerson reviews the exhibition at the British Museum in @countrylifemagazine ‘I am Ashurbanipal: King of the World, King of Assyria’ ‘highly accessible, without dumbing down, tightly focussed on a single lifespan - that of King Ashurbanipal, who reigned over the Assyrian empire of the ancient Middle East from 668BC to 627BC ... horribly fascinating; it teaches us a great deal, but also makes us shudder.’ @britishmuseum until the 24th Feb @countrylifemagazine #assyrian #assyria #britishmuseum #travel #travelhistory #middleeast #ancienthistory #ancientmiddleeast #history #iraq #ancientcivilizations #civilization #ancientnorthafrica @hauspublishing #horse #horseharness

The painting “Madonna of the Canal” by Elizabeth Leader at the Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse, New York, recalls the tragic story of fugitive slave Caroline Harris who was so tormented by a canalboat crew that she jumped overboard with her young daughter. Harris was rescued, but her daughter drowned. No connection between this event and hauntings at the weighlock building have been made, but the art and account vividly illustrate the unvarnished truth of canal life in the 1850s.

St Nicholas Church, Bílovec, Czech Republic 🇨🇿 The St Nicholas Church is a major tourist attraction in Bílovec, especially the church tower.

After climbing up the 140ish stairs, you’ll be able to enjoy magnificent views of this area.

Initially a church was built here around the 14th century solely for the purpose of praying. It didn’t have the tower we see today.

After the Thirty Years War (1618-1648) this Church was rebuilt in the baroque style.

The tower was added in, constructed 10 metres taller, for the military to maintain a vigil over Bílovec.

During the repairs of this tower, many historical documents were discovered.

What I find interesting is that this tower has been struck by lightening many times.

In 1925, a lightening rod was attached to it. Overjoyed with his work, the tinsmith performed a handstand 50 metres above ground! He was fined 100 crowns by the authorities 😆

What are you up to this Friday? Comment your plans below

Data Bandi Chod Gurudwara in GWALIOR.
- Sikh guru Hargobind shaib was allowed to be released from the imprisonment with the order of Shahenshah Jahangir . The guru declined the offer to be released alone, so Shahenshah mentioned that whosoever can hold the daaman (extreme end of long cloth like saree in other context is to seek protection or to become follower of) of guru can go with him. This way all night people connected with guru daaman making it longer and longer, in the end 51 Bandi (captives) were released with guru sahib. 
_
- This way the name 'Data Bandi Chod' name was derived. Every Gurudwara has some history behind the name with different guru's, all with purpose of helping the humanity. Where the suffering ends the foundation of Gurudwara is established.
