Venetian Dalmatia

Romanesque (Romanesque architecture) churches are complemented by the outstanding Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the Venetian period", says the UNESCO report. Trogir is the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic (Gothic architecture) complex not only in the Adriatic, but in all of Central Europe. Trogir's medieval core, surrounded by walls, comprises a venetian well-preserved castle and tower (Kamerlengo Castle) and a series of dwellings and palaces from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Trogir's grandest building is the church of St. Lawrence, whose main west portal is a masterpiece by Radovan (Radovan (master)), and the most significant work of the Romanesque-Gothic style in Croatia. The British Encyclopedia 1911 British Encyclopedia, p.774 states that: "... from Italy (and Venice) came the Romanesque. The belfry of S. Maria, at Zara, erected in 1105, is first in a long list of Romanesque buildings. At Arbe there is a beautiful Romanesque campanile which also belongs to the 12th century; but the finest example in this style is the cathedral of Trau. The 14th century Dominican and Franciscan convents in Ragusa are also noteworthy. Romanesque lingered on in Dalmatia until it was displaced by Venetian Gothic in the early years of the 15th century. The influence of Venice was then at its height. Even in the relatively hostile Republic of Ragusa the Romanesque of the custom-house and Rectors' palace is combined with Venetian Gothic, while the graceful balconies and ogee windows of the Prijeki closely follow their Venetian models. In 1441 Giorgio Orsini of Zara, summoned from Venice to design the cathedral of Sebenico, brought with him the influence of the Italian Renaissance. The new forms which he introduced were eagerly imitated and developed by other architects, until the period of decadence - which virtually concludes the history of Dalmatian art - set in during the latter half of the 17th century. Special mention must be made of the carved woodwork, embroideries and plate preserved in many churches. The silver statuette and the reliquary of St. Biagio at Ragusa, and the silver ark of St. Simeon at Zara, are fine specimens of Italian jewelers' work, ranging in date from the 11th or 12th to the 17th century ...". In the 19th century the cultural influence from Venice & the Italian peninsula (Italy) originated the editing in Zara of the first Dalmatian newspaper, in Italian (Italian language) and Croatian (Croatian language): ''Il Regio Dalmata – Kraglski Dalmatin'', founded and published by the Italian Bartolomeo Benincasa in 1806 AD. Furthermore, this ''Kraglski Dalmatin'' was stamped in the typography of Antonio Luigi Battara and was the first fully done in Croatian language. Governors The ''Provveditore generale'' (Governor-general) was the official name of Venetian state officials supervising Dalmatia.

San Gil

the local tribes. The town was officially founded on March 17, 1689 by Don Gil Cabrera Dávalos and Leonardo Correa de Betancourt. According to official sources, San Gil played an important role during the Colombian independence (Colombian Declaration of Independence) period.

Famous historical stories such as Mori Motonari's (毛利元就) “''Sanbon no ya'' (Three Arrows)” and Xufu’s (徐福) voyage to Japan were introduced in Japanese language textbook. Higuchi, Kenichiro; Kwong, Yan Kit. 2009 ."Inflow of Japanese language into Hong Kong during the Japanese occupation period", Journal of Sugiyama Jogakuen University. Humanities. p 21,22 The primary aims of this Japanisation of the education system were mainly to facilitate the Japanese control over the local people and to establish the Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere. Therefore, what it was trying to create was a rush to learn Japanese. On the other hand, by 1943, only one formal language school, the Bougok School (寳覺學校), had provided Cantonese language course to Japanese people in Hong Kong. According to the instructor of Bougok School, “teaching Cantonese is difficult because there is no system and set pattern in Cantonese grammar; and you have to change the pronunciation as the occasion demands” and “it would be easier for a Cantonese people to learn Japanese than a Japanese people to learn Cantonese.” Higuchi, Kenichiro; Kwong, Yan Kit. 2009 ."Inflow of Japanese language into Hong Kong during the Japanese occupation period", Journal of Sugiyama Jogakuen University. Humanities. p 23 Propaganda The Japanese promoted a bilingual system of English with Japanese as a communication link between the locals and the occupying forces. English shop signs and advertisements were taken away, and in April 1942, streets and buildings in Central were renamed in Japanese. For example, Queen's Road Central (Queen's Road, Hong Kong) became Meiji (Meiji period)-dori and Des Voeux Road became Shōwa (Shōwa period)-dori.

Charles May (Charles May (police officer)) became the first Superintendent of the Fire Brigade. At the time, the Fire Department was part of the Hong Kong Police Force. It had a total strength of 62 with a supplement of 100 Chinese (Chinese people) volunteers. The fire department expanded to 140 members during the 1920s. During the Japanese Occupation (Japanese occupation of Hong Kong) during the World War II, the Service disbanded. The two fire engines (fire apparatus) were exported to Tokyo to become part of the Imperial Palace Fire Unit. It was only returned after the War. Unlike Canada, UK and some countries, Hong Kong's ambulance service is tied directly with the Fire Department. At that time all emergency ambulance service was provided by the Fire Service while non-emergency was handled by the Medical Corps (Royal Army Medical Corps). - 1941 Geoffry Northcote, Mark Aitchison Young Japanese occupation of Hong Kong begins after the Battle of Hong Kong Pearl Harbor (Attack on Pearl Harbor) incident, U.S. enters World War II - History The former Marine Police Headquarters was constructed in 1884.

History ''HMS Tamar (HMS Tamar (1863))'' was originally the name of a British naval vessel which arrived in Hong Kong in 1897 and remained in the British territory until Japanese occupation of Hong Kong during World War II in 1941. In memory of this vessel, the British named the Royal Naval station in Hong Kong "HMS Tamar (HMS Tamar (shore station))".

They began operation in the afternoon of 22 March 1921, and have run ever since except during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong during World War II. History During the Second World War Japanese occupation of Hong Kong, most of the Indian POWs captured in Hong Kong were interned at a POW Camp here. The Japanese 'encouraged' these men to join the Indian National Liberation Army, but met with little success. While hundreds of these POWs were not considered a threat by the Japanese, and were used as 'guards' at Gun Club Hill Barracks and other areas, 500-600 Indian soldiers considered anti-Japanese were held at Ma Tau Chung in very unpleasant circumstances. There were many deaths, and the men were buried just outside the camp near the vegetable gardens of the Argyle Street Camp immediately on the other side of Argyle Street (Argyle Street, Hong Kong). The barracks were one of the first British military compounds in Hong Kong and were used by the Japanese during the Japanese occupation (Japanese occupation of Hong Kong) (1941–1945). They underwent major restoration after World War II. Part of the land was returned to the Hong Kong Government in 1967; D H Oxley. (1979)''Victoria Barracks, 1842-1979''.

Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance For the three nights straddling the Mid-Autumn festival, As cited from Discover Hong Kong Tourism Board visitors can also see the spectacular Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance. It's a 67-metre-long 'fire dragon' that winds its way with much fanfare and smoke through a collection of streets located in Tai Hang, close to Victoria Park (Victoria Park, Hong Kong) in Causeway Bay. The Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance started in 1880 when Tai Hang was a small Hakka (Hakka people) village of farmers and fishermen on the waterfront of Causeway Bay. This custom has been followed every year since 1880, with the exception of the Japanese Occupation (Japanese occupation of Hong Kong) and during the 1967 disturbances (Hong Kong 1967 Leftist Riots). Geoffrey Roper "Report on Visit to Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance, Mid Autumn Festival 1992", in ''Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society Hong Kong Branch'', Vol. 30, 1990. pp.307-308 History Located beside the historic Sham Shui Po Police Station, the centre was built on part of the site of the former Sham Shui Po Camp, a prisoner-of-war camp for Commonwealth forces captured during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong, which was also used to house Vietnamese refugees in the late 1970s and 1980s (see boat people). St. John's College (St. John's College, University of Hong Kong) * The University's first hall of residence, '''St. John's Hall''', was built by the Church Missionary Society in late 1912. It has been a tradition of the hall to hold High Table Dinner every week since its introduction in 1916. This custom was subsequently taken up by other halls. '''St. John's Hall''' housed male students until the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong. The original site is now occupied by St. Paul's College (St. Paul's College, Hong Kong). A post-War inspection on August 31, 1945 found the hall totally ruined with only four of its walls remaining. Combined with '''St. Stephen's Hall''', the new '''St. John's College (St. John's College, University of Hong Kong)''' was built in 1955 in 82 Pokfulam Road to replace the former hall. In 1941, the Maryknoll Sisters left Hong Kong and closed the school because the Japanese army invaded (Japanese occupation of Hong Kong) Hong Kong. In 1945, after the Japanese surrendered (Surrender of Japan), the school reopened. * Cleanup needed (updated by bot) ** 70 - Baguio Villa, Bank of Canton, Bijia mountain, Caffeine culture in Hong Kong, Cantonese (linguistics), Chan Kam Lim, China Far East Railway, Chinese Orthodox Church, Crown Prince Party, Di (ethnic group), Early Admission Scheme, East Asian calligraphy, East Asian rainy season, East Chinese Railway Incident, Environment of China, Faye Wong, Faye Wong discography, Fu Hon Cheung, HK Golden Forum, Han Chinese clothing, Harnam Singh Grewal, High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China, History of metallurgy in China, Home Return Permit, Hong Kong Certificate of Identity, Hong Kong Commercial Daily, Hong Kong Economic Times, Hong Kong Fringe Club, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong legislative election, 2004, Human rights abuses by Hong Kong police, Indigenous inhabitant, Initial D (film), Jackie Chan, Japanese occupation of Hong Kong, Jenny Tseng, Jianzi, Jordan Chan, Kwun Tong Government Secondary School, List of TVB programmes, Lugard Road, Lü Clan Disturbance, Man Behind the Sun, Michael David Cartland, Ming Dao, Ocean Park Hong Kong, Peking Opera School, Perhaps Love (film), Pillar of Shame, Red Guards (China), Shaw Organization, So Lo Pun, Song Ci, State Food and Drug Administration of China, Stephy Tang, Tai Kok Tsui, Tang Dynasty, Tanka (ethnic group), Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Vietnamese people in Hong Kong, Wang Binyu, White Lotus, Wing Lung Bank, Women's healthcare in 20th century China, Xi Shi, Yangtze River Crossing, Young and Dangerous * Expansion needed (updated by bot) History The school was growing out of a primary school Tack Ching School founded by Sisters of the Precious Blood in 1923 at Nam Cheong Street.

The school suspended its operation from 1941 and 1945 during the period of Japanese occupation of Hong Kong. In 1945 the school resumed its operation and opened a branch in Wan Chai, which became Precious Blood Secondary School in 1946. In 1949 the school was moved into a new school building at Un Chau Street near the junction of Yen Chow Street and Castle Peak Road in Sham Shui Po with a grand opening by the then-Hong Kong Governor Alexander Grantham. After more than 50 years, the school was relocated again to the present site one the new reclamation of Cheung Sha Wan.

Free Territory

To date, the best known examples of an anarchist communist society (ie, established around the ideas as they exist today and achieving worldwide attention and knowledge in the historical canon), are the anarchist territories during the Spanish Revolution "This process of education and class organization, more than any single factor in Spain, produced the collectives. And to the degree that the CNT-FAI (for the two organizations became fatally coupled after July 1936) exercised the major influence in an area, the collectives proved to be generally more durable, communist and resistant to Stalinist counterrevolution than other republican-held areas of Spain." Murray Bookchin . ''To Remember Spain: The Anarchist and Syndicalist Revolution of 1936'' and the Free Territory during the Russian Revolution (Russian Revolution (1917)). Through the efforts and influence of the Spanish Anarchists during the Spanish Revolution within the Spanish Civil War, starting in 1936 anarchist communism existed in most of Aragon, parts of the Levante and Andalusia, as well as in the stronghold of Anarchist Catalonia before being crushed by the combined forces of the regime that won the war (Francoism), Hitler (Adolf Hitler), Mussolini, Spanish Communist Party repression (backed by the USSR) as well as economic and armaments blockades from the capitalist countries and the Spanish Republic itself. Murray Bookchin . ''To Remember Spain: The Anarchist and Syndicalist Revolution of 1936'' During the Russian Revolution, anarchists such as Nestor Makhno worked to create and defend—through the Revolutionary Insurrectionary Army of Ukraine—anarchist communism in the Free Territory of the Ukraine from 1919 before being conquered by the Bolsheviks in 1921. When World War I and series of revolutions across the Europe including the October Revolution in Russia shattered many existing empires such as the Austrian Empire Austrian
