This day the father of the Indian Nation, Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated by Nathuram Godse in the year, 1948. Only a few days before an attempt on his life had been made. While Gandhi has admirers all over the world even today, some people hated him so much that one of them actually killed him.
30th January is also remembered as the day when state funeral of Sir Winston Churchill, one of the greatest prime ministers of England took place. He was buried in Bladen Churchyard, within a view of Blenheim Palace, where he was born 90 years previously.
On this very day in 1933 another very significant but rather unknown event took place. The event that changed the history of the world. Adolf Hitler was appointed German Chancellor by President Von Hindenburg of Germany.
