„Politics and history are so closely linked
that they must never be considered separately!"

(Niall Ferguson)

EN: In many countries, propaganda has discredited and partly criminalized history. Especially in the 20th century, the history of many peoples was condemned in this sense. This is particularly difficult because dealing with history makes a people sick and vulnerable to critical currents.

ES: En muchos países, la propaganda ha desacreditado la historia y, en parte, la ha criminalizado. Especialmente en el siglo XX, la historia de muchos pueblos fue condenada en ese sentido. Esto es especialmente difícil porque este manejo de la historia hace que un pueblo se enferme y sea vulnerable a las corrientes críticas.

For the period after the Second World War, what Bert Brecht put it in these words was true: "The victor always writes the story of the vanquished. To the slain, the racket makes the moves. The weaker goes out of the world, and the lie remains."

Para el período posterior a la Segunda Guerra Mundial era válido lo que Bert Brecht resumió: "El vencedor siempre escribe la historia del vencido. Al muerto, el bateador hace los movimientos. El más débil se va del mundo y la mentira se queda atrás."

At the end of the fourth book of his "History of the Thirty Years' War", Friedrich Schiller had also clearly recognized about Wallenstein: "It was unfortunate for the dead that this enemy considered him and wrote his story."

También Friedrich Schiller, al final del cuarto libro de su "Historia de la Guerra de los Treinta Años", había reconocido claramente sobre Wallenstein: "Una desgracia para la muerte, que este enemigo lo pensara y escribiera su historia."

"One of the most fascinating phenomena of our time is the extent to which a military defeat influences the writing of history and the general consciousness of history, and the winner is spared from moral judgments." (Winfried Martin, 1905 – 1991).

"Es uno de los fenómenos más fascinantes de nuestro tiempo el grado en que una derrota militar influye en la historia y en la conciencia histórica general, y el vencedor se libra de juicios morales." (Winfried Martin, 1905 – 1991).
