2009

Comparing my age with historical figures

When I read a biography, I compare person's age with my age.

Today I have read about some of the top members of the Nazi crew. Many of them died at about my current age (44).

Himmler was 44 when he killed himself by biting a cyanide capsule.

Soviet army killed Bormann when he was 44.

Goebbels was 47 and his wife was 43 when they killed themselves and their 6 children.

Ribbentrop and Goering were 53 when the Allies executed them.
Hitler killed himself at 56. I am not that old yet.
