Cours d’histoire sur Twitter !

Petite note pour vous faire part d’un cours d’histoire qui a lieu en ce moment même sur Twitter et ce jusqu’en 2016 !

En effet, un jeune historien retrace la seconde guerre mondiale en temps réel, 72 ans après ! C’est génial : une dizaine de messages par jour sur la situation politique, des déclarations, des photos ou documents d’époque ou encore de témoignages de civils.

Si vous êtes déjà sur Twitter, suivez donc @RealTimeWWII et si vous n’êtes pas sur twitter, c’est une bonne raison de vous y inscrire.

Pour l’exemple, les tweets du jour (à lire de bas en haut !) :

« Repetition does not transform a lie into a truth ». Read a transcript of Roosevelt’s entire speech here:…
« No person in any responsible place [in government] has suggested sending boys of American mothers to fight on the battlefields of Europe »
Finally, President Roosevelt says no danger of American involvement in the European war.
« A Reactionary is a somnambulist walking backwards. A Liberal is a man who uses his legs and his hands at the command of his head »
« A Radical has with both feet firmly planted in the air. A Conservative has 2 perfectly good legs but has never learned to walk forward »
President also praising moderation of US politics; « Extreme Rightists & Leftists make us realize the value of the democratic middle course »
