The importance of knowing the truth about history:


“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” ― George Orwell, 1984.

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” 

― George Orwell


“History is a set of lies agreed upon.” 
― Napoléon Bonaparte

A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. Marcus Garvey


History is the witness that testifies to the passing of time; it illumines reality, vitalizes memory, provides guidance in daily life and brings us tidings of antiquity.
CICERO,

To remain ignorant of things that happened before you were born is to remain a child.
CICERO

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
GEORGE SANTAYANA


History is written by the victors
- Winston Churchill
