After the changes, Russia had to rediscover the past. Academic historians are reinterpreting the Russian history, but their interpretations are regularly changing due to their political point of view. It will take some time before the Russian historians will have the academic distance necessary for an objective as possible approach in their quest for the historical truth. To provoke a change in the system of history education is a long-term project, which demands for long-term approaches. And a change in ways of thinking makes changes like this. To guide this process of change, or at least a trajectory of it, this project was developed. In the project, innovative educational materials are developed within a clear set timetable within an international, constructive and co-operative environment. The produced textbooks would like to provoke the debate on history education and will assist history teachers in Russia to meet the new requirements. The materials will help them to teach new content and offer new approaches for the learning and teaching of history.
