The role of

with respect to humanity. In my opinion, the value of
history
depends on the

itself.
History
sometimes negatively affects the present and the future of a person or even a nation. In some countries,
History
has been scrapped from the school curriculum because it has been seen as incendiary, inciting cold wars and even actual wars occasionally. The
history
of Nigerian civil war in the years 1968 to 1971 is a good example of where
history
can be harmful. It was found that youths in

As a result

In addition

is invaluable, and should be transferred through generations, while a bad

is in the
