The History of International Students Day:
The history behind this special day is one filled with some of the darkest moments of history due to being in honor of those students who were killed by the Nazis in Czechoslovakia. Czech universities were stormed in 1939 by Nazis due to the students’ will of having their voices heard about anti-nazism and also, to show their regrets of the German’s thoughts of closing all high-level educational facilities in Czechoslovakia, sadly, many lost their lives and the rest (at least 1200 students) were sent to concentration camps. Years later, many students and institutions from countries decided to create this special day to pay tribute to those students who suffered from tortures and were killed for just defending their dignity and speech.
