    Behind the Headlines: Historical Revisionism in the 20th and 21st centuries

    in News

    Everyone has heard the term "those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." If that maxim is true, and if it is to be useful to everyone, then it is essential that we have access to an accurate account of history and the reasons why historical events occurred. 


    Most people would agree that war should be avoided if possible, yet in the 239 years since the American declaration of independence, the USA has been at war for 229 of those years. Were all of those wars necessary? If that isn't a repeating historical pattern, we don't know what is.


    The First World War was called "the war to end all wars" and yet, just 20 years later, an even worse conflagration consumed the Eurasian continent, killing 65 million people.


    The phrase "never again" is most often heard in reference to the genocidal policies of the Nazis towards the Jews of Germany and Poland, yet today a record number of Jews are fleeing Europe for Israel in the face of mounting anti-semitism.


    Apart from 4 military assaults on sovereign nations, the deaths of at least 2 million people and the creation of an extremely instable security situation in many parts of the globe, the almost 15-year-long US-led war on terror has created a distinct anti-Muslim climate in many Western nations that bears many of the hallmarks of the first waves of anti-Jewish sentiment in Nazi Germany. 


    So if we have an accurate understanding of history, why does it appear to continue to repeat? Is there something wrong with our official historical narrative?


    Behind the Headlines airs live this Sunday, 08 March 2015, from 3-5pm EST / 12pm-2pm PST / 7-9pm UTC / 8-10pm CET.

    Nicholas Thurkettle, Co-Author of Historical Fiction Novel "Seeing by Moonlight"

    in Books

    1941 - On the eve of America’s entry into World War II, Nazi Germany is developing a new weapon of unprecedented power, one that will give them ultimate victory over all the nations of the world. But the war turns against them before it is completed, and a conspiracy forms to preserve the weapon and carry on the research.


    1999 - At the dawn of a new century, Alex Pyke, a self-styled bachelor entrepreneur, wants only the American Dream of a bigger house and a fatter bank account. But a business opportunity lures him back to Germany, the country he left as an orphan of five during the height of the Cold War. Upon his arrival, he is swept up in a deadly adventure involving an aging industrialist and his brilliant, beautiful niece. Even as Alex unravels the mysteries of his own family’s history, he makes a discovery that will change the direction of his life, and maybe the whole world beyond.


    Seeing by Moonlight is a thriller that combines uncovered history of the German rocketry program with a science fiction twist to create a sweeping tale of secrets and love that spans generations past, present, and future.


    Nicholas Thurkettle has worn many hats in the creative world – screenwriter, playwright, novelist, journalist, editor, ghostwriter, stage producer/director, actor, feature film story executive and consultant, teacher, production crew member. He works independently in Los Angeles with the continuing goal of bringing good work to audiences anywhere he can find them.


    Nicholas is the co-author (with M.F. Thomas) of the acclaimed thriller novel Seeing by Moonlight, and the author of the short story collection Stages of Sleep. He earned his degree in Theatre Performance and Music at Bradley University, and is a proud member of the Writers Guild of America and the Orange County Playwrights Alliance.
