Just as a racial war was waged against the Jewish population and the military fought the French and the Slavic people, an artistic cleansing for the Germanic culture was in progress. Special Nazi units were searching the ancient arts of antiquity for evidence of a great Germanic race that existe

There was a period where the Indian could withdraw or be pushed into vast reaches of uninhabited and as yet unwanted territory in the west. By 1865 the s

The Korea Question What is national identity? This question may seem to be to simple to even bother answering. The easy answer is that national history is the events in a nation's past that, when put together, unify all aspects of life in that nation.
