English abstract
I will in this paper try to examine how teenagers interpret the content of history education and teaching strategies. Consequently the aim of this paper is to give the reader an overview of how nineteen high-school students as well as three authors of the textbooks for high schools perceive history as a school subject. The results of the interviews with authors and pupils were compared and contrasted to the content of the textbooks as well as the content of the national curriculum. The interviews with the pupils were made between 2004 and 2006 in Swedish city of Malmö, where over 40 present of children between the ages six and fifteen have a foreign background.
