Summary/Abstract: In Turkey and the world there are many triggering factors, actors and results of historical courses. Within these courses, words and assumptions continuously change and these words and assumptions gain meaning and are subject to semantic shift as well. Within these processes, each event can be faced by humanity by demonstrating a front view with their facts, assumption, belief base and perception type. In order to handle these views healthily in each event evaluation, certain pedagogic and methodologic methods were developed. When action is taken by these methods and open perception understanding, real nature and purity of events can be clarified. When the subject is religion, history, tradition and community, arguments for preserving this objectivity becomes more and more sensitive. With the aim of understanding and explaining these sensitive values properly, an evaluation stage for new perception and understanding to be developed was handled.
