Top Ten Worst Days In Human History


The Top Ten

1 September 11th, 2001

Without a question April 5, 2019. For me that was the evening of infamy after an evening of celebration the previous day. I was only trying to remove the safes and it turned worse than September 11, 2001. That day changed my life forever.

Word day ever

This was really sad a lot of people died that day. I was 2 years old when it happened

Why is this such a big deal? I mean, a few people died, but there were way more deaths on other days such as dropping the a-bomb on Japan. People... being so dumb!

Really, there was a magma flow over 200 million years ago that wiped out 93 percent of life on earth, so this is like nothing compared to this day - Post

A day that caused a high chance of the Pearl Harbor event.

This is worse than 911

Honestly on 9/11 2001 a thousand people died, on 9/1 1939 a war started IN WHICH 61 MILLION PEOPLE DIED

Directly caused World War One and Two. Arguably marked the end of the empire and monarchy, that had been around since humans first started agriculture.

Horrible, horrible day. The day that Franz Ferdinand was shot, leading to World War I, World War II, the Cold War, the rise of communism and fascism, the indirect deaths of 50-100 million, the creation of the atomic bomb, need I say more? This day sucked.

4 January 30th, 1933

The start of the holocaust

The start of WWII was this day

Hitler becoming Kanzler. The beginning of a nightmare.

5 October 29th, 1929

This started the worst decade in recent history that affected the world (although some were hit harder than others). Millions lost their jobs, & most who didn't lose theirs still had horrible jobs with low pay. Like somebody said, many had to give up everything just for food, with one woman being forced to sell her children. This also led to Hitler's rise to power, as if the economy hadn't dived down significantly, he wouldn't have blamed Judaism for the collapse of Germany's economy (along with their WW1 defeat). So this day led to the 1930s being the worst decade in recent memory & led to the deaths of more than 83 million.

The Great Depression caused many people to sell all their possessions and sadly a women had to sell her children.

6 August 6th, 1945

Either we risked losing even more of our men, taking over island after island, we get ROC and the Communist Chinese to work together, or we end the war in only a week. It was the best choice.

From this date the humanity, simply, stopped to be

140,000 lost their lives in the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. Statistically, the number one worst single mass killing in history.

39 September 15th, 1066

Slight date error, this should be October 14, 1066, which was the Battle of Hastings.

Although the names were different back then, what happened was that the "French" defeated the "Britons" in battle, then permanently took over rule, and they have not left since!

Slightly more than "slight" error.
The "French" did not defeat the "Britons."
It was not a battle between Franks and Celts.
It was the defeat of the Saxons, a Germanic tribe, by the Normans, descendants of Vikings.
Truth is, all of these peoples were fairly closely related in antiquity, somewhat less so by the time of the Norman Conquest.

40 August 25th, 2012

Indeed, the modern era's greatest person passed from our presence on this day.
