I survived school history despite the best efforts of the education system to bore me to death. Many years later, I discovered Treaties, dates, the movement of nations, are mere context. The fascination is in the details.

Loss of the Pamir - This day in 1957 the sailing ship Pamir sank in a hurricane south-east of the Azores. There were only 6 survivors from the 86 people on board. A German film about the tragedy is currently in production with the Russian sail training ship Sedov standing in for the Pamir.
