In social studies education, history is included as one of social sciences responsible in making good citizens. The role of history as one of the foundation for social science education especially for the growing values is to grow the sense of belonging and sense of solidarity, which are required to establish a national identity. The role can be seen in the effort to make the process of self-identification as part of members of a nation (Indonesia), the pluralistic one. One of the characteristics of Indonesian people is pluralism, in terms of various ethnic groups, religions, and languages. To establish and maintain the pluralism, effort is needed to build the attitudes of mutual respect, acknowledging the existence and the cooperation among people. Regarding this matter, socialization and wide and depth understanding of multiculturalism will enable people to grow the attitude of mutual respect for ethnic and cultural diversity. Inter-ethnic relations could not be just simply a motto (Bhinneka Tunggal Ika), or just a symbolic recognition. There must be a real effort to realize the expected life. Social studies learning and especially the reinforcement on the national history material that shows togetherness, tolerance and respect for ethnic/culture diversity (multiculturalism) are expected to increase students' empathy (sympathy and tolerance) toward others.
