The historical truth in the eyes of the modern Georgian historians

Perhaps, there is today a controversial science than history. With all of this does not need to equate history as the history of science as an impartial process of development and modification of human civilization. History as a science has long become a hostage of personal submission of certain groups of people who are trying to justify using those stories, or other actions of today. With all this, there are so called "court historians" who can mold out of seemingly unrelated events that together sculpture, which is favorable view of their patrons. Court historians have existed at various times, and their task was to form a typical glorious accomplishments chronicles the acting head of the country, which led to the current "prosperity." Court historians — is a professor layer, which in principle is not restricted to outside the municipal boundaries of the state or territory. These people do their work, often having a different opinion to that longs to build formalized in a documentary version of the president, prince, king, general secretary, etc. Rewriting history — the dirty work, but that there is still a court executioners have court jesters, and has the same court historians who know their job and work on the right to plan: a step to the right, step to the left — you know …

And in such a situation is very curious to see how sharyat the back streets of some historians historical processes of the so-called near abroad, that catch their fish in troubled waters has long past days. The main product of such work are, first, the history books for educational institutions at different levels and, at first, for the school.

To show the work of modern historians on the example of the court separately taken country, it is necessary to offer the reader some of their works, which now forms the public opinion of young people. Just in front of this kind of demonstration must immediately make a small remark: all materials exposed below — this is not some fiction author and a desire to achieve the grotesque. This is the real materials that describe the very essence of the policy of the authorities of the 1st of those countries with which our home for a long time lived, what is called, in sorrow and in joy, until the decision of a group of people in the early 90's do us part …

One sign of the court of history, which was presented to the Georgian people in nedavneshnem past, can be regarded as sensational work Bezhan Khorava and his other associates under the title: "200 years of Russian occupation." In principle, this is the case when looking at the cover of the book, you can text in it already and do not read. The position of the creators, the formation of which they were asked to gently on top, clear and without a second subtraction. But still for the entirety of the senses, such work can not be ignored. From the book you can find out that the first occupant which almost trampled Georgian independence was Russian governor Paul I. After which the "trampling" Georgia, what convinced the creators of the textbook, not once tried to secede from the Russian Empire, but the Russian reign again and again suppressed the desire of the Georgian people with fire and sword, in 1804, 1812, 1819.

From the book "200 years of Russian occupation" you can find yourself a lot of modern and amusing disk imaging. It turns out that our homeland, occupied Georgia first of the 19th century, well, not lusted focus on the national identity of the Georgians. All-terrain that other Russian Empire were so self-identity, and that it is difficult to imagine for themselves, but Georgia was the only Russian province only. With all this learning tool for creators of students grades 11-12 Georgian schools skillfully evade the topic of how to recognize the Georgian identity in XV-XVII centuries. Turkey and Persia (Iran). Khorava bypasses the sovereign and the question of why Paul I generally come in handy to sign a contract to join Georgia to Russian Empire. Is it up to the signing of this document, the Georgian ruler Vakhtang II did not ask to protect the Empress Catherine II of Kartli-Kakheti (the former title of the region, which now houses the Georgian government) from the Turks and Persians? Do not shed the blood of Russian soldiers in the regiments of General Totleben in the years 1769-1772 in the wars against the Turks on the side of Georgia? Is it the end of XVIII century in Georgia was not observed internal conflicts related to issues of succession to the throne, as a result of which began the most real plainclothes war in which to stop the Georgians themselves wanted to be part of a great empire?

Stupidly believe that court historian Bejan Khorava and his colleagues do not know this history of Georgia, but what do they do make your own "masterpiece"? .. The fact is that Misha Saakashvili after the disastrous attack on South Ossetia was useful information justification of their actions. Political order was this: we can not resist the Russian Federation in the field, so let's use the information front, educating young people to mistrust all Russian. And it is the worst thing for the Russian and Georgian peoples who for centuries beheld each other as good neighbors, that this book is aimed first at the Georgian youth. When a high school student reading "data" about the Russian occupation, "which turns out to be more than a 2-centuries, it is possible for yourself to imagine the world he has formed over Russia.

This entire opus brings the reader to the "main" event — the "attack" of the Russian Federation against Georgia in 2008. In other words, the leitmotif of the book is the following: Our homeland for 200 years and only did that suppressed Georgian people (with all this yourself, then Russian, of course, lived in clover …) tried to blank out the Georgian statehood and kill cultural heritage. And at such HEADS from the Russian side can only marveled how Georgians managed for such a long time to save the language and the culture, besides manage to "delegate" the representative of his people for the top municipal post — we are, of course, about IGOR . Dzhugashvili (Stalin). That's occupation …

In the history book of another creator can read more amazing lines. It turns out that despicable policy of the Union of Russian 30-40s almost forced the Georgians to wage war on the Soviet side, and sacrifice for the life of the occupying forces and the real resources. Further creator delves into the subject. From his words it appears that all of the healthy and the patriotically-minded people rejoiced defeats Russian forces during the second World War. Note that the combination of majestic Russian court historians Misha Saakashvili did not use. It turns out that the shoulder-to-shoulder with the Russian, Ukrainians, Azerbaijanis, Belarusians and other ethnic groups have fought wars only unhealthy and antipatriotichnye Georgians — like this turn of events. If you take the words of the founders of this school textbook stories seriously, it turns out that in the 40s on the terrain of Georgia lived entirely unhealthy and backward population, as against the German fascist troops fought wars over 300 thousand Georgians, and a lot of them were employed in the rear. That is not a falsification of history, and a direct insult to their own people. At the same time, and then the creators somehow bypass the facts that during the "use of Georgians to help Russian occupiers" in the 40's at the helm was, in fact, Stalin. So maybe, and then the claim must be presented in a somewhat different direction, or it is better to stop this nonsense for a separate publication in the sovereign gift of Saakashvili.

But we are all well aware
that the purpose of publishing such a textbook is not limited to the disclosure of historical facts. The purpose of it is contained in a totally different — to force young Georgian generation outright hatred of everything that is connected with Russia. And this goal seems to be paying off. Georgia managed to grow a generation that is already firmly convinced "Russian barbarism", "years of Russian occupation" and "the desire of the Russian Federation to erase independent Georgia from the earth."

And after such a "historical process" of the Georgian population Georgian President says that he opened the borders to the Russians by canceling visas to say: you are welcome to stay in our country, you are 200 years old occupied … Not clear demonstration of friendship, is not it.

But then Georgian municipal ideological inspirers historians "whistleblowers" to recommend one: always keep in mind is that it will take quite a little time in Georgia may seem other people with similar goals, which are relaxed to rewrite history for their own way. An insult to the memory of their own as Protz exactly characterizes the adequacy of state power in the Caucasian country.
