History lesson – What happened the 2nd week of January?

As we begin the 2nd week of the new year and the new decade, it’s always interesting (I think) to look back in history and see what was happening x amount of years ago on a specific date. It’s often hard to recall where we were or what we were doing at a specific time, but did you know that almost 80 fascinating events and facts occurred in our history this week – the 2nd week in January? Below are just some of the interesting events that may just jog your memory.

•Hitler declares war
