Ivanovo Regional History Society

Questions answered by the candidate of historical sciences, deputy chairman of the Ivanovo Regional History Society, a member of the regional branch of the Journalists Union, Semenenko Alexander. Alexander Mikhailovich, what do you think is legitimate if at all, this approach "the truth is not true" when talking about any historical event? When events are at a great time away, I was always confused by the approach that had was true, now some other truth, etc. I, as a historian, it sometimes makes you wonder, does not change if we lie one to another, or adjusted or will adjust themselves under a story that we need to take from this fact. This is true not only of the First Council, but the Great Patriotic War and the Civil War. Home Depot usually is spot on. A true story does not happen, there are facts.

Vladimir Lenin said that "history – a policy overturned in the past." We can at this laugh, but it gives variation. A man and historian can not be entirely objective. All right. And what if in this context, historians can do with "First Board"? First, remove excess ideologization. In general, the history – It is also a myth, propaganda and agitation.

Yes, there was a political order. Incidentally, he's always there. Speaking of the First Council, it must be said that there was no First Council was not, and there was a meeting of Commissioners, then the 35th anniversary Soviets tried to use a quote Lenin, to create a myth. What then were guided by the creators of the myth of the First Council? I believe that guided by the fact that Ivanovo-Voznesensk time – Ivanovo, occupied a special status.
