11 significant history facts interpreted differently by other countries

It is hard to believe the way they treat the same historical events in different countries.

It may seem that history is a sequence of accomplished facts and we have no reasons for any dubious interpretation. But in reality it turns out to be otherwise.


Here is a collection of several examples, proving that history is one of the most inexact sciences.

What a a load of absolute trash! This is so unbelievably juvenile and tunnel-visioned that it simply takes my breath away. Don't believe this piffle. Read serious books on the subject from different countries and engage with people from there to get a better picture. And above all, be aware of how skewed your own country's view is.

War of 1812, very significant in Canada, when Americans tried to take Canada, and failed. Little attention paid to it in the States, but if they had won there would be no Canada. Can you imagine Trump as our leader!! 🇨🇦

In my opinion, all history is relative. If there is ever a matter that reminds one to not always believe what one is told and to come to one's conclusion, for me, it is historical events. Everyone wants to be seen as the hero, and while there are two sides to every story, there is often bias to the victor. It is up to the learner, to learn both sides, especially if we don't want certain parts of history to repeat themselves.

Well, the way we are taught varies, along with what we are taught and by who we are taught! Dunkirk, for example, is known as a massive retreat- what is celebrated is the collective action taken by tiny non-military boats to help the evacuation. Not quite the triumph you suggest!
