Summary/Abstract: Political history has frequently been used by politicians in the political sphere since 1989. This is not only connected with winning support for political parties, but also with coming to terms with history. Politicians express their views on political history without regard for their knowledge of particular events, and they appeal to historical facts to justify political demands. They regard it as “soft way” of achieving specific political aims.
