History, not the history

Usually, but not always. When talking about history in general, you're right that nobody would ever say "the history". However, you can say "People need to learn from the history of such-and-such place, (where such-and-such approach was tried and failed miserably)."

Oh I see I misspelled history

So what is wrong with "אנשים צריכים ללמד מן ההיסטוריה"? Shouldn't this be accepted?
