This Day in History

1533: King Henry the Eighth succeeds in having his marriage to Catherine of Aragon declared null and void (the sneaky old man)

1934: Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow are gunned down in Bienville Parish, LA by Texas Rangers and Louisiana lawmen.

1945: Heinrich Himmler, the head of the Nazi Gestapo, commits suicide after his capture by the Allies.

1960: Israel announces the capture of Nazi fugitive Adolph Eichmann in Argentina. (a great book to read on the subject is Eichmann in My Hands by Peter Z. Malkin)
