Today in 1914 - One of the most celebrated oddities in human history, the WW1 Christmas Truce, broke out in many sectors of the Western Front in Belgium and northern France. As well as on portions of the Eastern Front.German, French, British, Austria-Hungary, and Russian soldiers emerged from their opposing trenches in broad daylight to meet each other in "No-Mans-Land." Their celebrations ranged from simple holiday greetings, casual chat, small gift giving, and even notable soccer matches. In total the Christmas Truce is one of the most thought provoking and profound instances in modern history. After 1914, each belligerent nation took sharp measures to end similar fraternization in the future. Along with the cumulative bitterness of war, the truce was not observed as such again.The truce was a demonstration of humanity starkly contrasting its inhuman backdrop. A historical footnote that showed the inherent complexity of our better nature in the worst of times. #funnyquotes #funny #funnyshit #europe #europeanhistory #worldhistory #germany #belgium #austria #hungary #russia #serbia #truce #christmastruce #1914 #bizarre #oddity #hope #amazing #awesome #awesomequotes #tgnrhistoryinquotes #holidays #TGNR #history #todayinhistory #christmas
