Indrė Šerpytytė - 9/11 and the Age of Terror
Indrė Šerpytytė's work 150MPH is partly the Lithuanian-born artist's way of processing the events of 9/11 and partly a monument to the people who lost their lives in the attacks on the Twin Towers.

Timeline of 20th and 21st Century Wars
Military conflict took place during every year of the 20th Century. There were only short periods of time that the world was free of war. The total number of deaths caused by war during the 20th Century has been estimated at 187 million and is probably higher.
