I will tell you more – different people in the same country often see historical events differently. Even those who went to the same school with the same teacher. People generally see the world around them differently and can look at the same facts, phenomena and events in completely different ways, this is called subjective perception.
It depends primarily on the values and priorities that have developed in the process of education and life in general, but there are a huge number of factors in it, including the mood at a particular time.
Our ancestors had such an attitude to this , there was truth, lies and truth. The truth always brings positive feelings, lies negative, the truth is fearless.
In today's world, you can also add politics and interests to this list. Many powerful people do not care about the truth or lies, much less the truth, they can, in the pursuit of power and profit, say white – black, black – white. It is the same with history, if necessary, they will first equate communism with Nazism, and after a while they will generally say that the Soviet Union attacked peaceful fascist Germany, and Stalin is a demon, and Hitler is an angel! So it is with the whole ungainly world history.
As a rule, yes. Why? Yes, because “…What is normal for a spider, chaos for a fly. … ” – This is Martisha said from the Adams family. What was done for the benefit of one country often went sideways to other states. Charles XII for the Swedes was and will remain a national hero, as a man who united Sweden and made a developed state. For Russia, this is an aggressor. Samurai in Japan are brave warriors for the common man in the street, but for Koreans they are terrible killers. Because they destroyed the Korean population mercilessly. In Korea, comparing a person to a samurai is like comparing them to fascists in the rest of the world. You can continue for a long time and in detail, but as I understand it, the essence is clear.
It all depends on your upbringing and mentality. Each country has its own traditions, and the perception of history is superimposed on the peculiarities of the state. In Russia, victory in the Second World War is a great holiday when the enemy was defeated at a huge cost, and in Germany-a day of remembrance and mourning, complete denial of fascism and shame for their ancestors.
It's hard to add anything to the answer above. People really have different points of view on any events. But if you are specifically interested in the division by country, then various political or historical factors that fall on the school history curriculum come into force. For example, the Armenian Genocide is not officially recognized in Turkey (this is not just a statement, if it is recognized, then it will have to return the selected lands) or the United States, but in Europe, Russia and a bunch of other countries this is not the case. Most likely, the school curriculum (we are talking about it) is superimposed on political factors and nothing more. A good tool for managing mass consciousness.
