Because of this event, the word genocide was created – the organized violence against specific groups of the society committed in order to destroy these groups by murdering them (What). The process of banishing and murdering millions of people was systematic and took years. These people were taken to the ghettos by force, living them no chance to do something, but be isolated (The Holocaust). The Final Solution came when in June 1941 the Germans attacked the Soviet Union (The Holocaust). Four command groups aimed to gather all Jews from different cities for them to be shot with automatic weapons and by the end of 1942 the number of murdered Jewish people because of the command groups went up to 1.3 million (The Holocaust).
On Thursday July 7 2005, four suicide bombers attacked central London in four different places. It was a co-coordinated attack that struck the Underground simultaneously at three different places in central London. Short time after, the last suicide bomber exploded on a bus. Few days after the attack, British Prime Minister Tony Blair spoke at the yearly Labour party conference, which this year was not only for the supreme decision makers of the party. It’s estimated that over 600 people gathered to hear Tony Blair’s speech.
As the Vietnam War went on, many Americans began arguing about it, particularly at many colleges, students marched and protest against the war. But not all the people, mainly rich adults didn’t greet these young protesters favorable. The political cartoon titled “Name a Clean One” published by Highsmith Inc. in 1995, uses the expression of characters and text to show the reality of the war. In the cartoon, all the common people were shown as the young middle class who were protesting against the rich man, probably a politician who thinks war is justified. All the common people were different from each other and have a different occupation.
The court case was one of the most controversial cases within Americas history. On February 6, 1971, a grocery store, Mike’s Grocery, located in downtown Wilmington was burned down. There were many incidents regarding race that were emerging, since New Hanover County schools were being boycotted due to the fact that Williston Senior High School was being shut down in order to desegregate schools. Soon after riots occurred for a couple of nights, the Wilmington Ten were arrested and charged with arson and conspiracy to fire upon firefighters and police officers. With this incident taking place in the mid 1900’s, there was still a lot of corruption occurring within
The World Trade Centers in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington D.C were struck by airplanes that were hijacked by terrorists. This terrible tragedy killing many people had deep impact on the whole American citizens. They were grief stricken, left in fear, and full of revenge to the people who committed such an awful thing. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended. The attacks involved four synchronized plan hijackings, two from Boston, on from Newark and one from Dulles International Airport in Washington.
After President Truman’s book came out it said that half a million American lives were saved. World War II was very bloody, especially in the islands. In February and March of 1945, there was a battle of Iwo Jima 80,000 Americans fought and 6,281 were killed and 19,000 were injured. Military planners estimated that at most 46,000 Americans might die in numerous invasions. When Truman approved the dropping of the atomic bombs the death toll for Americans was much less than what actually happened.
The KKK rallying in the streets, and offensive posters being put up in college campuses. Things like this are going on around the world. Free speech is being used to hurt those of different sexes, races, ethnicities. It’s being called hate speech. It has been going on throughout history and has been the basis of the biggest and bloodiest war ever WW2.
Thousand were wives were left widows and hundreds of kids orphans. After consistent protests by the Americans, U.S.A withdrew from the later stages of war.

Machiavelli’s idea of punishments was; punish hard, fast and all at once. This means that a leader must have no mercy and punish hard to keep their people in line. This philosophy applies quite a lot to Hitler, for example, Kristallnacht (the night of broken glass). On the night of November 9, 1938, violence and hatred against Jews broke out across the German Reich and thousands of Jews were captured and killed. The morning after the massacres, 30,000 German Jewish men were arrested for the "crime" of being Jewish and sent to concentration camps, which was a harsh punishment.
Rather the movements were spurred on and attracted more supporters (Source D). The massacre and the proceeding trial came at a turbulent time in the United States (Source F) and this cannot be dismissed as it definitely influenced and heightened the interest that was simulated by these events. The state of the nation before the 1968 massacre was a contributing factor to the massive outcry that it evocated. Although the American public were impacted by the massacre at My Lai, this was not the sole factor for the unrest around America’s occupation of
