has not been directly experienced though its meaning has been shared. This second type of collective memory appears to be quite similar to Durkheim's ( 1901) notion of collective representations.

Nostalgia does not simply feed on these memories, it is continuously made up by them: The reference to the personal sphere, like the recalling of private events associated with the main public events (those that Brown and Kulik ( 1977) called flashbulb memories), represent the possibility of access to the collective story and at the same time the reconstitution of the coherence of the self through a social belonging (see Neisser, 1982).
