(Enkele dagen later op 13 november 1933 verkrijgt de Nederlandse zwembond (NZB) het predikaat Koninklijk en verandert de naam aldus in Koninklijke Nederlandse Zwembond (KNZB). Het bondsbureau was destijds gevestigd in Utrecht van waaruit wedstrijden in den lande werden georganiseerd. Bij het begin van de 21e eeuw telt de KNZB in totaal ongeveer 153.000 aangesloten leden, verdeeld over 475 zwemverenigingen. Heden ten dage is de KNZB gevestigt in Nieuwgein en is aangesloten bij de landelijke sportkoepel NOC*NSF.)

(Op 16 november 1933 knopen de Verenigde Staten diplomatieke banden aan met de Sovjet-Unie.)

(Op 5 december 1933 komt aan de drooglegging in de Verenigde Staten een einde. Met drooglegging wordt meestal bedoeld de poging van het Amerika in de twintiger jaren om de consumptie van alcohol geheel te verbieden en daarmee het alcoholisme uit de Verenigde Staten te bannen. In januari 1920 werd de alcohol geheel verboden. Door dit verbod verdween de handel in drank in het illegale circuit. Er werd massaal in het geniep gedronken. In Canada en Mexico draaiden cafés bij de grens topjaren. Illegale cafés ontstonden in achterkamertjes, waar illegaal gestookte drank werd geschonken. Veel criminelen hebben zakken geld verdiend aan die handel, de bekendste daarvan was Al Capone. In 1933 ziet de Amerikaanse overheid in dat dit beleid voor geen meter werkt en is men alcoholgebruik door volwassenen geleidelijk weer gaan tolereren.)

(Enkele dagen later op 9 november 1939 nemen de Gestapo twee twee Britse agenten Captain Sigismund Payne Best en Major Richard H. Stevens van de Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) gevangen. Duitse agenten hebben een ontmoeting met Britse agenten geregeld in Café Backus aan de Herungerberg in Venlo op enkele tientallen meters afstand van de grens. Best en Stevens worden vergezeld door de Nederlandse luitenant Dirk Klop. Als Best, Stevens en Klop aankomen bij Café Backus, dwingen de Duitsers door het vuur te openen de auto tot stilstand. Klop trekt zijn dienstpistool, maar wordt neergeschoten. De Duitsers brengen de twee Britse agenten en het lichaam van Klop over de grens naar Duitsland. Zo winnen ze informatie in over de organisatie van de SIS en een lijst van SIS-officieren die gevangen genomen zouden moeten worden zodra de invasie van Groot-Brittannië een feit zou zijn. Hitler gebruikt het Venlo-incident als aanleiding om Nederland binnen te vallen op 10 mei 1940, omdat Nederland door de aanwezigheid van een Nederlandse officier zijn neutraliteit geschonden zou hebben.)
