10 Things You Don’t Know About Mister Rogers
Cardigans and Keds — both images are synonymous with Mister Rogers, who hosted "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" from 1968 through 2001. The almost 900 episodes live on today in reruns. The famous entertainer died in 2003 but would have been 84 on Tuesday. In celebration of his birthday, PBS began airing a documentary called "Mister Rogers & Me," produced by two brothers who detail their experience of living in a summer home next to the television pioneer on Nantucket Island.

After her purportedly Jewish parents were deported by the Nazis, the Belgian author set off alone at age seven to find them. Her 1997 book, Misha: A Memoir of the Holocaust Years, included stories of walking 1,900 miles across Europe in five years, living with wolves, and having to kill a German soldier in self-defense.

10 Most Devastating Bombing Campaigns of WWII
The Second World War (1939-1945) saw many terrible developments in humanity’s history. Indeed, it was of course set against the backdrop of the wholesale destruction and planned extermination of whole groups of people because of their ethnicity, political allegiances or religious beliefs. The story of Nazi Germany’s aggression and the Allied Powers’ subsequent response – in a war that quickly encompassed much of the world map – is a story of power, technology and science. That same science lent its fateful hand to the aims of men and saw its terrible zenith in the horrors of the bombing campaigns of World War Two. Here we are not considering the equally horrific and never matched atomic bombing raids on Nagasaki and Hiroshima; rather, we speak of the meticulously planned and often prolonged campaigns that razed cities to the ground and devastated entire urban populations. Here, then, are the 10 most devastating bombing campaigns of WWII.
