”Historia testis temporum, lux veritatis, vita memoriae, magistra vitae, nuntia vetustatis est”
(History is a witness of time, the light of truth, the life of the memory, the teacher of life, the vest of the ancient)
The goal of history is to give students wider scientific knowledge on historical processes of development, to develop critical thinking and a scientific viewpoint on human past and the contemporary times. History points out the roots of a variety of phenomena and processes in the past, as well as the future. By means of its research findings, history as a school subject, should enable students to find orientation in the present and in the future.
