Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine what intentions teachers in history have with their

teaching about the Interwar period, approximately the years from 1920 to 1939. This was

done with five interviews. With the question; “what can we learn from history?” the study

tries to see how historical consciousness is expressed in the teachers intentions.

The result shows that the teachers are mostly on the same page of what they think is

important to teach. It’s about Germany, and it’s not only about Germany. The teachers

intention is to show that not all of the Germans where supporters of the Nazi-party, but also

most importantly; that the Nazi-party was given power thru a democratic election. This can be

seen as how the teachers want the pupils to cherish the democracy we have today, and not to

take it for granted. In the other hand the teachers want to explore the structures and the

context where the Nazi-party arose. For example the teachers speak of the development of

racial biology that spread all over Europe, and not only in Germany. The given broad

perspective can help pupils to understand Germany and what kind of mindset Europe had that

made the fascistic movements grow.

The conclusion is that historical consciousness is widely represented in the teachers

intentions of their teaching of the Interwar-period. If this actually develop historical

consciousness or not is another study to make. But the results shows reason to believe that it

can be done, and that the Interwar-period is a historical period that can help pupils to

understand the meaning of living in a democracy, and to give them a meaningful education to

guide them today, and in the future.
