Why do people view history differently and why does it matter that they do?
People see history differently because people have different perspectives and grew up in different environment. So if people pass the same period and saw same history or events, but they remembered in different way, because they have different perspective.
One example is different religions. It is because they grew up in different environment, mostly family influenced and family. Some time this is matter because they have small fight between different religions because different religions have different beliefs and rules, also different perspective on one event or stuff.
I realize that when I was interviewed, people has different perspective and view history differently. I think it depend on how does that event affect that person or how they felt, also how many time they hard about that events. For example, my parent was lived in Korea beginning of economic crisis but Korean news or article didn’t showed information in detail way, also my parent was moved to Japan so it didn’t affect to them too much, so they don’t have detail information than other Koran people.
