yes history differs from country to country. Everyone doesn't learn the same subjects. In france the algerian war is basically brushed over while i'm pretty sure alegerians know well about it at school.
Same for colonialism. Despite acknowledging it was a bad thing at first. When talking about de-colonisation we skip the parts that say how we made Syria a shithole and stuff. I never heard at school about the incident during WW2 when the british navy gunned down the remaining french navy in algeria.
history in my school boring af
Them foreign kids don't get to learn about history of toilet appliances and their maintenance.
Russia is our neighboring country and I am pretty sure they ain't teaching shit even close to true.
my teacher often highligted how differently they teach the particular event in slovakia and romania i arent remember which one but he said it a lot
In Brazil the government tries to push Socialism into the throat of the students, in the books here.. Marx is a legend :(
Its impossible to teach history without bias
In germany my teacher talked always bad against the ottoman empire and how great germany was hahaha herr schulz if you read this.. have a nice day
*Awaiting wiretap to see him post his Jedwabne link from wikipedia*
I don't think it's biased in a nationalistic way, for example the kings who were considered national heroes 100 years ago are either unknown or seen as mass murderers. If anything, it's probably more brainwashing the other way around compared to how it usually is. And we don't really have any genocides or major colonies to negate.
Che Guevara was a hero, Cuba is the best country in the world, and everyone has iPhones, MacBooks and infinite Internet without ping.
Lenin was Jesus Christ, Stalin saved the world, Mao saved his people from starvation, Pol Pot saved his people from imperialists, Shaka freed his people from slavery. The URSS invented everything there is in the world, except cure for cancer, AIDS and getting old, which Cuba and North Korea invented simultaneously.
Hitler wanted to take over the world solely because he hated black people, and economy had nothing to do with WW1 and WW2. Mussolini did everything he did because he hated gays, and economy had nothing to do with it either. Fascism is a political ideology based on hate of blacks and gays, economy has nothing to do with it.
Castro, Maduro and Kim Jong Un are heroes of fighting imperialism, capitalism and neoliberalism.
Neoliberalism is everything that isn't what we're supposed to believe. If we think differently from everyone else and from what our professors tell us to think, it means we have no critical thinking skill. If we think what they tell us to think and what everyone else thinks, we have critical thinking skills and we're intellectuals.
Marx and Foucault > Einstein and Newton
in the united states we are taught in schools for history that God created the earth about 6000 years ago in 7 days. Of course, Jesus was given to America to lead us in the American Revolution War and that's why we never lost a war since.
i was taught we came kindly and nicely asked the aboriginals to share the land and they started attacking us
probably not though.
History as taught in greek schools is often used to inflate nationalism and the orthodox christian religion...
Also its too damn long (so many thousands of years, ugh!).
I lived in 3 countries Poland, Switzerland and USA. I think the best history class I ever had was in Switzerland. It was very detailed it mainly focused on the Swiss POV but also discussed the countries around it. The second best was in Poland. We had a terrible history and it was described to me in detail. I remember it to this day and I took the class 7 years ago. The history classes in the US are ok. In my school they divided the material 2 years Global History and 1 year US. The global history was pretty good but the US is terrible. And to answer your question, yes history differs from country to country.
Some countries like to tell fairy tales and claim them as history
they say hitler was right i cry they laugh we all laugh he does suicide
Frensh Revolution, WW1, WW2 & everything around it, immigrations, Religions like islam, Christianity, Judaism etc. And colonies and so on, thats what I have learned yet
in germany: hitler hitler hitler cuz hitler was austrian so that makes all germans bad -> LOGIC :))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
I'm a university student of history here in Brazil . We Studied many french, english and german historians . Mainly french and we are influenced by the Annales school.
Very much so. Several of my teachers point out biased in my Textbooks.
We all learn or have learned different shit, all of it is propaganda, education system stopped teaching about real history centuries ago.
Yeah I took History for my GCSE and we're learning about british politics in 1890-1918 (about the liberals), Nicholas II and the revolution in 1918 and the american boom in 1920 and all the presidents etc
once the greatest empire in the world. Today they say we're Spain.
We study ancient western and eastern societies, discovery and colonization of Americas, history of Europe and so on. But the main thing we learn from history/geopolitcs classes in Brazil is that socialism is good and free market is evil.
In German schools they teach you that Hitler was good
It's really bullshit in German, full of brainwashing etc
