    MENDIETA PARADA, Pilar. Memories of the Revolution of 1952. Historia [online]. 2017, n.37, pp. 11-42. ISSN 2519-0253.

    This article deals with the memories of the 1952 Revolution among inhabitants of rural La Paz as well as middle and upper classes in the city. It is based on interviews conducted by students of the UPEA, the UCB and the UMSA between 2010 and 2015 as part of their coursework. Using oral history methodology, we attempt to recover the memories of those who did not have a direct role in the events and of those who participated but whose experiences are not well known. This involves the memories of common people whose voic-es are normally not heard by researchers. In both cases, the Revolution of 1952 is considered a historical landmark.

    Keywords : Revolution of 1952; collective memory; memories; oral history.
