History happens to be my favorite subject! Probably because I grew up in Europe so instead of just reading about history in a dry book I got to climb through ancient ruins, explore castles, marvel at a Roman aqueduct, relive the fear of Jews during World War 2, and so much more. History came alive and I got to be part of it!

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." Santayana

Learning about history is important for so many reasons! It is important to know where we came from, to learn from humanities mistakes, to marvel at the progress we've made, and to see how God's hand has been with us from the beginning. We didn't start off as cave men as science would have us believe, we are a creative intelligent creation as we have been from the moment God created us - and studying history proves it!
