100 Years Ago – 21 December 1920

21 December 1920

The Government published proposals to allow for 50,000 unemployed ex-servicemen to be found work in the building industry, at an expected cost of around £3.5 million.

It was reported in the press that over 8,000 people had been executed in Sebastopol (now better known as Sevastopol) by the Bolshevik Government. It was noted that there had been a large number of public hangings and there had been no attempt for the killings to be performed in a private area.
