History of International Dalek Remembrance Day:
The year at which the International Dalek Remembrance Day was first celebrated is unknown. We can think that the founder who established this Day might be crazy about Dalek. The Day rejoices and remembers the Daleks which appeared on Doctor Who in 1963 in a 7 part serial called “The Daleks.”
They were invented by the science-fiction writer Terry Nation. The Daleks are the most frightening villains ever shown on tv for science fiction fans. They lack climbing stairs and which was one way that Doctor Who characters could save themselves.
The scientist Davros engineered Daleks during the final years of a thousand-year war between his people, the Kaleds, and their enemies the Thals. Davros genetically modified his own people, the Kaleds, by removing all their emotions.
The Daleks were then left to operate just on hate and vengeance. The Daleks were inspired by and constructed after the Nazi’s of Third Reich Germany.
