Youth research in recent years has revealed that, with info-communication tools (smart phones, web 2.0) becoming a part of children’s and youths’ everyday life, screenager generations spend less and less time on face-to-face conversations both in the family and in their peer group. Influencers and virtual (online) communities are gradually taking over the role to form children’s thinking played so far by traditional interpreting communities’ (family, peer groups). Youths’ exposure or, in other words, vulnerability to hoaxes and manipulative information spread via the Internet is increasing. The premise of our research is that the lack of family discourse on family history and historical events leads to unrelatedness, which results in collective memory fading away. At the same time, the social role of trans-historical values among members of young generations and their effect on guiding young people’s behaviour is decreasing. These factors may transform the objectives and function of history as a school subject and history education (as a form of civic education realised in school). In the present study, we explore family discourse on historical events in students’families and issues of students’value orientations. Furthermore, we investigate opinions on social values that may be represented by history as a school subject and students’ and teachers’ views on the tasks of history education.
