Who are we?

History is vulnerable to distortion influenced by biases, cultural perspectives, and the passage of time. The retelling of events is often shaped by political agendas and individual biases. Revisiting history is essential as it allows for incorporating new evidence and discoveries, challenging existing narratives. By critically analyzing historical accounts through a contemporary lens, we can identify and rectify inaccuracies, striving for a more accurate and inclusive portrayal of our shared human history. In doing so, we gain valuable insights relevant to the present and future.

In essence, the malleability of historical narratives underscores the importance of revisiting history. Through continuous reevaluation, we aim for a more accurate, inclusive, and insightful understanding of our past, enabling us to draw more reliable lessons and connections to the contemporary world.
