The Fall of the Weekly History Thread

Welcome to this week’s History Thread! Apologies for last week, I was too deep in research to start a thread. We will have an open discussion this week, so feel free to discuss any and all history-related topics. Today is the anniversary of the death of Adolf Hitler and the Red Army’s capture of the Reichstag (the famous picture above wasn’t actually taken until May 2nd, however) and the fall of Saigon at the end of the Vietnam War, and also a certain beleaguered president firing four of his closest aides.
