Historical Marginalisation - Zhang Xiaochen "Baku-Oxford School"

Society A- A A+
Zhang Xiaochen from China is currently studying at Baku-Oxford School. Within the scope of the collaborative project “A World on the Margins” between the International Eurasia Press Fund (IEPF) and Enrichment sts of Baku-Oxford School, he was taught about the professional journalism and investigation process. He selected to write about history. 
After careful review, his article was among the selected to be published. 
Eurasia Diary presents the forth article, selected for publishing within the scope of this project:
"Each country has its own history as well as the world has its own. History is the study of past events, the stories of people who used to live before, facts about the wars and etc. History is being investigated by the reachers and architectures. Then after, the found information is being written in the book or shown on the television. 
Hence, the lessons about history have to be provided in all schools to make sure that each student studies history of its own country. Studying history helps to predict the future. Predicting the future helps to know what may happen and be ready for it. History also helps to understand how the world has been changed to something like today. The people who do not know their history are fated to repeat it. People often repeat. Learning history sometimes also helps us to avoid doing the same mistakes from the past. 
History books are books that teach history (obviously). But there is a small problem. The problem is that most history book have the same history! And that makes the students think that in the world there is only the same history and then they will get uninterested in history. In order to fix this problem is to learn history from the history books in the school because the school always provide different books with different information.
Some history books have the same information but it could also contradict each other. For example, there is a book titled "Chinese believes in one god". But there is also another book titled "Chinese believes in three gods". This could happen because sometimes the researchers who are writing books about history could find different information. 
Sometimes, history classes could hide some history or study fake history. For example, Japan does not teach about the war between China and Japan during the the World War Two because they lost the war because it lost the war ( this example is counted as the hidden history for Japanese). In Armenia, they teach the students that in the past half of Azerbaijan, half of Turkey and half of Iran were related to Armenia but actually it is not true. (this example is counted as the fake history). Hidden history is actually good because if the Japanese know that they have lost the war, they would not be friends with Chinese and be afraid of Chinese people. However, fake history is actually very bad for people and students, because people in Armenia will be very jealous and let their own country down and then soon Armenia will be the least developed country in the whole universe.
Everybody hopes that in the future the world won’t have any fake history or else the countries which have fake histories will end up like the jealous Armenians, and soon the world will be peaceful and every county will help and work for each other."
Previously, three more articles "Causes and Effects of Xenophobia", "Why are women's rights important?" and "If marginalization of actors and musicians was fair all the time?" written by the students of Baku-Oxford School were published.
