In this sense, the connection with the past may be the history of fragments of the past. These connota tions arise in part from the specific role that memory played in the construction of the French idea of the nation and in part from recent changes in the attitude of the Les plaques commémoratives dans les rues de Paris», en Annales, no. However, we shall see this is not so: although the concept has been applied to these issues, its relevance to such recent and violent pasts, particularly in Latin America, has not yet been discussed in depth.

On the other hand, what makes them a memory site is the interplay of memory and history, the interaction of both factors, which allows their reciprocal over-determination. 23-43.

On the one hand, "there must be a memorial intention" [quoting Nora]. 26 It is for this reason that "the places of memory are fundamentally remains, the extreme form in which a commemorative conscience endures in a history that summons it, because it is unknown.

The police and armed forces honored their dead nevertheless, in ceremonies carried out in military units and clubs. 1219-1236. Thirdly, while the initial intention of these places is to remember, there may be other purposes included in the meaning, such as denouncing the fact that the past has left open wounds that should be healed. This is why it is quite possible that the version of "state terrorism" will become dominant during the government of President Tabaré Vásquez. This is not so, however, in the first place because many of these works do not debate the theoretical possibility of its use, but simply take it for granted. ― La fundación por la palabra: Letra y nación en América Latina en el siglo xix, Montevideo, Facultad de Humanidades y Ciencias de la Educación, Universidad de la República, 1998.

This can be approximately translated as: Mr. President, hear this song / with all your troops and your courtiers / we shall not hush until we hear / where is Mariana, where is Simón? Realms of Memory, the three-volume English-language edition of Pierre Nora's critically acclaimed Lieux de Memoire, translates the vicissitudes of national self-consciouness and the meanings and disjunctions associated from past events into a unique and incisive portrait of a nation. In this article Tom Rose explores the dominant theme in cultural history: the concept of memory. From the present to the present, contributing to the debate on memory, always civic-minded, never in a militant fashion...this is why he stated in 1984: "I had thought that the rapid disappearance of our national memory required an inventory of the places where it had effectively been played out". Another, who was first a political activist, subsequently imprisoned, later became an exile, and was now a taxi driver, tried painstakingly to locate his old cell among the marquees. It is also fundamental, after an exceedingly violent past, to understand the disclosures and proposals of the memory and amnesia sites raised on the foundation of this past. Part of Springer Nature. For Nora it probably depends on the fact that these recent sites do not involve the length of time necessary for the history of a nation. The third stage began in 1985, when President Julio María Sanguinetti changed the designation: from fallen in the battle against sedition', the commemoration became "Day of the Fallen in the Battle for the Defense of the Democratic Institutions" (decree 127/985).

And this is the starting point of Nora's diagnosis, and the reason why it is so important to analyze the implications of the places of memory related to a specific past, because if presentism goes hand in hand with questions about the nation and the crisis of national identities, it should be pointed out that practically all nations are faced by the need to probe into these matters. I This article contains an interesting review of the debates that took place concerning the construction of the shopping mall. Rousso, Henry: «La mémoire n'est plus ce qu'elle était», en Ecrire l'histoire du temps présent, París, cnrs, 1993, pp. Hartog suggests that if the Lieux are a symptom of today, they are so too in the conception of memory taking place there. The quest for memory is the search for one's history. We shall first examine who bestows the memorial intention on these places, and leave the question of historical time to be dealt with later. The metaphor is unequivocal: one must forget, and turn the places of memory into places of forgetfulness and consumerism. This becomes far more evident in the case of commemorations. 61-83.

He avowed that the death of the soldiers had been "an act of war, a battle, and not the murder of defenseless victims", and that for this reason he found it "incomprehensible that the Left should contribute to such a tremendous ideological falsification of the truth", generating a memory in which "the Armed Forces were defending the institutions, and we Tupamaros were attacking the nation", something which to his mind was not in keeping with the historical reality of the seventies.40. Beck, 2001. cit.. 53 In an earlier study we analyzed many places of memory in the urban space that demonstrate this tendency, such as the names of streets and squares, buildings linked to the recent past, and commemorations. They are the points where space and time meet memory. It would imply a negotiation at a societal level of what the country wishes to be as a nation: a negotiation to find a national consensus on forgetfulness or memory. Boltansky, Luc: «La dénonciation», en Actes de la recherche en sciences sociales, no. In South Africa, a historical break occurred at the onset of democracy in 1994.

Sauber, Mariana: «Traces fragiles. 57 However, what must be made clear is that, in the case of recent pasts, particularly when they were violent, the places of memory may function in a manner different from the ones that link to more distant pasts. As the Lieux de mémoire are also a writing of history, they participate in the memorial struggles between different groups or social actors who are attempting to appropriate a doubtful past.

Both: denunciation was present, but so was the need of creating a conscience about a past that did not exist, not because it had been forgotten but because it was unknown. However, we consider that there are some examples that contradict this statement, particularly when it comes to recent, violent pasts that have not yet been resolved by different sectors of a society, and when the community holds dissimilar memories of that past. Boer, Pim den, and Willem Frijhoff (eds. This demonstrates the symbolic, material and functional characterization that are intrinsic to commemorations as Lieux de mémoire. Achugar, Hugo: «El lugar de la memoria, a propósito de monumentos (Motivos y paréntesis)», en E. Jelin, V. Langland (eds. Thus it is understandable that certain names should call for debate, because the various political players are not willing to see their vision of history erased from the public and urban spaces in the country. But what those who adopt Nora’s historical account of the rise of memory often overlook, is that the story of the ‘age of commemoration’ is a narrative construct. The concept reviewed here can certainly be applied to the analysis of memorial struggles: the memory sites originated in these struggles, through their meaning and in the discussions they generate, wage their own battles for the appropriation of the past and the country's definition of its identity. 6,1995, pp. ), Memoria e Historia, Revista Ayer 32 (1998), pp. 56 Hartog, Régimes

This article probes the notion's possible bearing on Latin American circumstances, especially within the context of confrontation and memorial struggles, and in the history of the present time, by reflecting on the specific case of Uruguay and its recent past (pre-dictatorship and dictatorship). A place of memory or a place of denunciation? If the answer to this question is affirmative, then in Uruguay the population is in debt to its recent past as far as military detention centers and prisons are concerned. Another of the virtues of the concept, in the opinion of Hartog, is its plasticity and operational capacity which, while favoring its acceptance, also contributed in a way to emptying it of meaning and allowing a continual extension of its boundaries and contours. Thus, on 17 April 2002, Angelitos was sung by its author for the last time, because everyone now knew "where is Mariana, where is Simón".
