When I was in school, I have an interest in history subject. I really like knowing what happened in the past. Specially if that past is very well connected to its present or future, or just plain story. But there are some events in the past that we will never learn in school. Thanks to this reddit user, through these images we can now look back to some events of our history.

After viewing these images, I was in silence, because some of the photos left so many questions, some really shook me, some made laugh and more. One question linger in my head…Did they really happened?
