June 28 coincidence?


I noticed two events that share a day, though five years apart, and I wonder whether it was coincidence.

Pure coincidence, or macabre planning by diplomats?  Anyone know?

    Though I’ve long since forgotten where I read it, there has been some scholarship to the effect that the treaty signing was held off a few days to make it symbolic. Considering how the armistice began at 11:11 on November 11, it comes as no surprise.

    Intentional & symbolic. Not intentionally macabre.
