WEIMER, Karen Sibila Strobel Moreira; OLIVEIRA, Denize Cristina de  e  ANUNCIACAO, Luis Flávio Chaves. The national truth commission and the construction of social memories. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.46, pp. 435-448. ISSN 2175-1390.

The Brazilian National Truth Commission (NTC) was an initiative aimed at clarifying human rights violations that occurred between 1964 and 1985. Because of its intrinsic socialparticipation, it allows the study of one characteristic of social memory, which is forgetfulness. With the aim of exploring psycho-social aspects such as perceptions and attitudes toward Brazilian Truth Commission, 159 participants (51.6% women, 68.6% left-wing) undergrad students from the State University of Rio de Janeiro were interviewed and answered attitudinal and emotional questions about the NTC. The results revealed that knowledge about the NTC andpolitical orientation have significant effects on the set of analyzed variables. The self-declared left-wing participants have had a greater agreement with NTC enterprises, in addition to having a greater intensity of positive and negative feelings about the NTC. The self-declared right-wing participants have had a greater agreement with forgetfulness actions. This research brings important contributions to the study of attitudes and social memory toward Brazilian Truth Commission, and facilitates the development of new hypotheses about social memories.
