The native American holocaust.
Tulsa Race Massacre.
Definitely an example of “please pay attention because this can and will happen again.”
[Tulsa race massacre.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tulsa_race_massacre) Tulsa, OK was referred to as black wall street, but wikipedia now states that it was Raligh NC that was the black wall street. It is left out of most books I’ve read about the time period. There are photos and such of people posing with black people they just killed, but still no charges to this day.
In 1921 a white mob decided to kill and burn down a town that was created by black people that was successful and prosperous. No charges were ever filed, but anywhere from 36 to 1000 people were killed. 10,000 people left homeless.
The soviet-afgan war
The shit King Leopold pulled in the Congo
note: I’m from the USA. I’m sure it’s talked about plenty in other places, but it isn’t here
The Reign of Terror during the French Revolution. There is a lot to learn from it in a sense what to avoid/not to do, even if you mean good.
The Turkish led Armenian genocide. That hate is still alive and well to this day. Why one cultural group thinks another has no right to exist baffles me.
The Philadelphia Experiment
the british raid on zeebruguh
The Black Death
Also known as the Pestilence, the Great Mortality or the Bubonic Plague – occurring in Western Eurasia and North Africa from 1346 to 1353.
It is the most fatal pandemic recorded in human history, causing the deaths of 75–200 million people, peaking in Europe from 1347 to 1351.

Battle of Wizna. It might not have had a huge impact on history but it was hella impressive. The polish soilders have really proved, that it wont be easy to take us down. Although defeat was inevitable, the Polish defence stalled the attacking forces for three days and postponed the encirclement of Independent Operational Group Narew fighting nearby. The soilder ratio was 40:1. There is a great Sabaton song about the battle, it’s called “40:1 (forty to one)”
