Anne Frank didn't die in Amsterdam. She was caught there and sent to a concentration camp.

mother Theresa was horribly cruel to the people she was supposed to serve. Do look into it but as a rule of thumb, catholic saints shouldn't automatically be seen as good people.

A widespread libel popularized by an author desperate to destroy the legacy of a great woman over her religious beliefs.

Most people won't bother reading it, since they've made up their minds without looking into it at all, but if you care to peer beyond the Catholic-bashing, maybe this is an interesting place to start.

Funny how the city where one of these people died is named after someone else on the list.

Shame that more people can remember the place of death of a mediocre singer than the heroic Joan of Arc. I'm pleased that I was the other way around!

Yeah, but Bruce Lee wasn't really known for his singing ability anyway.

I don't how how I misread Muhammad as Muhammad Ali, and spent well over a minute just guessing random US cities.

Scottsdale, Arizona.

Somehow I knew this from memory.

Dang it, brain. Why are you retaining useless information like this and forgetting where I parked?

Had there not been a note warning "one of these cities no longer exists" it never would have occurred to me to guess Babylon.

Joan of Arc just became a guessing of random French cities until I got it. Tried Orleans first and then just started going around from there.
