(Eén week later op 11 mei 1917 gaat in Zürich, Zwitserland de opera Turandot van Ferruccio Busoni in première. Busoni, de Italiaanse componist en pianist was een wonderkind en maakte al furore toen hij nog maar 8 jaar oud was. Zijn vader was van Duitse en zijn moeder van Italiaanse afkomst. Hij studeerde in Graz, waar zijn familie zich gevestigd had en reisde als gevierd pianist door Europa. Vanaf 1888 verlegde hij zijn werkterrein naar Moskou, Helsinki en Boston waar hij als docent werkte. In 1894 werd zijn hoofdverblijfplaats Berlijn, waar hij met tussenpozen, tot zijn dood bleef wonen. Van 1907-1908 werkte hij aan het conservatorium van Wenen en van 1913-1919 was hij directeur van het Liceo Musicale in Bologna. Bij het uitbreken van de Eerste Wereldoorlog, verkoos hij Zürich als woonplaats. In 1920 ging hij terug naar Berlijn om compositie te doceren.)

(Op 21 mei 1917 breekt bij Valthermond in Drenthe een grote veenbrand uit. Oorzaak is een vonk uit een baggermachine. Dagenlang wordt een groot gebied van zuidoost Drenthe geteisterd. Zestien mensen vinden de dood zeker negentig woningen en diverse turfschepen verbranden. Enkele dagen later bezoeken koningin Wilhelmina en prins Hendrik het rampgebied.)

(Op 4 juni 1917 wordt de eerste Pulitzerprijs uitgereikt. Het is een Amerikaanse prijs voor journalistiek op het gebied van nieuws, kunst en letteren. De prijs werd bedacht door Joseph Pulitzer, een grote kranteneigenaar die oorspronkelijk uit Hongarije kwam. Hij maakte de New York World populair. De prijs wordt jaarlijks in april toegekend door de School of Journalism van de Columbia University in New York, die tevens door Pulitzer gesticht werd.)

(Vandaag precies 72 jaar geleden op 5 mei 1945 wordt in Nederland gevierd dat Duitsland capituleerde in West-Nederland. Op die datum zou in Hotel De Wereld te Wageningen de capitulatie zijn getekend tussen de Duitse generaal Johannes Blaskowitz en de Canadese Generaal Charles Foulkes, in het bijzijn van prins Bernhard. De overeenkomst wordt op 6 mei 1945 getekend in een verlaten boerderij even buiten Wageningen. Prins Bernhard is daarbij niet aanwezig. Op 8 mei 1945 capituleert Duitsland, waarmee de Tweede Wereldoorlog in Europa ten einde komt.)
