My mother in law died on the 75th anniversary of the repeal of prohibition.
That, too, was ironic!

Alexander Dubcek, the leader of Czechoslovakia during the "Prague Spring" of 1968, died on the 75th anniversary of the Bolshevik takeover in Russia (Nov. 7, 1917--Nov. 7, 1992). His biography on Wikipedia suggests that he may have been murdered.
Today is the anniversary of the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife in Sarajevo in 1914, of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, and of the Tito-Stalin break in 1948.
