On the evening of December 29, 1940, London suffers its most devastating
air raid when Germans firebomb the city. Hundreds of fires caused by the
exploding bombs engulfed areas of London, but firefighters showed a
valiant indifference to the bombs falling around them and saved much
of the city from destruction. The next day, a newspaper photo of St. Paul’s Cathedral standing undamaged amid the smoke and flames seemed to
symbolize the capital’s unconquerable spirit during the
Battle of Britain.

Twenty-four high-ranking Nazis went on trial in Nuremberg, Germany, for
atrocities committed during
World War II.

The Nuremberg Trials were conducted by an international tribunal made
up of representatives from the United States, the
Soviet Union, France
and Great Britain. It was the first trial of its kind in history, and the
defendants faced charges ranging from crimes against peace, to crimes
of war, to crimes against humanity. Lord Justice Geoffrey Lawrence, the
British member, presided over the proceedings, which lasted 10 months
and consisted of 216 court sessions.

The great Northeast blackout occurred on this day in 1965,  as several
states and parts of Canada were hit by a series of power failures lasting
up to 13 1/2 hours. More than 30 million people were into darkness in
one of the biggest electrical power failures in history. The blackout
was caused by a misconfigured power line at a hydroelectric power
station at Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
