The memory enables remembering the events that left a trace in our mind and carrying the past to the present time. We can mention about collective memory as we can do about personal memory. A common history and sense of belonging constitute the basis of collective memory. An identity has been offered to the people forming a society by transferring a past event to present from generation to generation by means of different ways. Lots of factors have on impact on remembering the past. One of these factors is the places which are figures of remembrance. Any society that desires to survive; constitute places that have various meanings in order to transfer the collective identity to the future generations and in order to preserve their cultural, national and moral values. French philosopher Pierre Nora; used the term “places of memory” in order to explain the places that undertakes the duty of carrying memories except for human body. According to him the memory cannot exist and survive on its own. It needs to be protected and needs places to be able to be preserved there. The places can be used for educational goals.
