Nov. 11 1918: The last Austro-Hungarian Emperor Charles I signs a proclamation in which he "relinquish(ed) every participation in the administration of the State" marking the end of the 600-year rule of the Habsburgs over #Austria. #TodayInHistory #ArmisticeDay100 #Armistice100
On 13 November, Charles IV issued a similar (Eckartsau) proclamation for #Hungary. In neither declaration did the emperor use the word 'abdication'. Indeed, he tried to reclaim the Hungarian throne twice in 1921. "I did not abdicate, and never will," he wrote to a confidant.
Altogether the losses of Austria-Hungary during #WW1 can be estimated at around 2 million (excluding direct civilian war deaths). #ArmisticeDay100 #ArmisticeDay

1/ It happened again this week. A ten year old daughter of a friend asked me, the only German she knows, who I wanted to win World War II. As if it was a football match.
2/ Around this time of the year primary schools are teaching years 5 & 6 about the war and the Blitz. Which is a good thing. But getting the question, and not for the first time, who I wanted to win the war raises the question about the quality of the syllabus.
3/ War is not a black and white thing. And neither is the rise of totalitarian regimes. Hitler and his NSDAP during the last free elections in Germany did not reach a majority but 37% of the vote share.

People don't fight for war; they fight for peace.
They tried peace between 1918-1939. It didn't hold. So 7 years after the end of WW2, they created the European Coal & Steel Community, ensuring economic cooperation, which eventually became the EU. #Armistice100 #ArmisticeDay
That's why I find those who use our war history as a reason FOR Brexit completely unacceptable. #Armistice100 #ArmisticeDay
I strongly suggest you listen to what RAF Veteran Stuart Thomson (@Vets4eu) has to say about Brexit: #Armistice100 #ArmisticeDay
