We witness many different types of injustices everyday in our society. As we
walk around the park or go to the store, people will start to judge us, discriminate against us because of the religion we follow or what race we are. The most common types of injustice are, for example, discrimination and anything that falls under that category. There is one injustice that people know about but might not actually think of it as an injustice People have their own ways of defining the word injustice. In the dictionary it is defined as a lack of fairness or justice. There are many types of injustices our society has to face but one that affects us as a whole is terrorism.
Countries and Civilians have witnessed terrorism throughout their lifetime.
Terrorism is the use of violent acts to frighten people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a social or political goal. Terrorism affects everyone. It makes us feel unsafe and doubt the protection from the national security, which is supposed to keep us safe and secured. Terrorism even affects young children and those who witness or are exposed are at risk from experiencing mental health difficulties. Unfortunately, Terrorism is an injustice that is witnessed around the world and affects the people.
Terrorism is witnessed and experienced in our lives and around the world and it is
clearly shown in the novel, The Book Thief. The novel is set before, during and after World War ll. It focuses around the life of Liesel, a young German girl who is taken away from her mother,
who is a communist, and sent to live with a German couple in Molching, Germany. An obvious example of terrorism that occurs in the novel is the “Night of broken glass” also known as Kristallnacht. On the night of November 9, 1939, nazi soldiers rushed through the streets of Germany and break any windows they can find and plundered jewish businesses. Terrorism is also clearly evident in the memoir Night. The story is about a teenager of the name Elie Wiesel who lived in the town of Sighet, Transylvania. In 1944, Eliezer and his family were taken from their home and transferred to the auschwitz concentration camp, and then to Buchenwald. The memoir takes place during the entire period of the holocaust and shows to us what he and his father had to go through during the concentration camps. A major example of terrorism occurs when Eliezer and his family are transferred from the ghettos to concentration camps. When Eliezer arrives at Birkenau and is separated from his family. While they were being chosen to either go left or right, Eliezer notice a ditch with huge flames rising up from it. He saw a truck coming close to it and unloaded a pile of babies. Eliezer can not believe his eyes. He did not want to believe this and thought that it was all a nightmare and that he would soon wake up from it. It is horrifying that people like the Nazis would do this to jewish people just to let everybody know that the Germans are superior.
Other than examples in the novels The Book Thief and Night, there's a clear connection with Terrorism in the movies Batman Begins and The Dark Night. The movies are about a man named Bruce Wayne who is later known as Batman. He fights criminals like The Joker and Ra’s al Ghul. A major example of terrorism is the beliefs of an organization called the League of Shadows.
