The Just Out Book
Nowadays, we love to brag about the peace and the civility of our world. We think that since slavery was banned people would no longer enslave others; that since democracy was invented no more tyrants and dictators would try to take over the world; that since women got the right to vote and go to school they will. This all is a big lie. We should never stop fighting for freedom of choice and ideas. The struggle is still happening, for example in the middle East or in North Korea. Do this places sound safe, civilized and peaceful?
Malala Yousafzai is a young girl who instead of giving in, fought. She fought with all the injustice and wrong until she was shot by Taliban, who got hold of a part of Pakistan. I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood UP for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban is an autobiography, which tells us a story of how a normal 15 years old girl became an icon of fight for Education and Freedom, and is going to be the youngest nominee for Nobel Peace Prize.
The book is already ordered for our library, so be sure to check it out when it arrives!
The Just Out Movie
A girl volunteers to participate in unbelievably cruel games in order to save her sister. Remember that story? Well, now you can see what happened after the victory in the new movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire with everyone’s favorite Jennifer Lawrence, an Academy Awards winner, as Katniss Everdeen, the girl on fire.
In this movie a rebellion will spark up in the streets of the districts, with Katniss Everdeen as their symbol, for what she will be in great danger. The Capitol seeking to stop the rebellion, will seek to destroy the symbol of freedom.
It will start in the cinemas this November.
The Hangout: The Naschmarkt
Of course everyone knows the famous Naschmarkt, a place where you can find your heart’s gastronomy delight. Not everyone knows that on Saturday it becomes a flea market, a real treasury for some. Most likely you have heard of the Parisian flea markets where you can buy a Dior New Look jacket from the 1930’s, but did you know that Vienna also has such a place? You can search through the shelfs of the little tents and be amazed what you can find there: vintage cameras, family amulets, Austrian national shoes, and delicate jewelry that looks like it came from another century.
