DARAHEM, Gabriela Campos; COSENTINO, Milena Callegari; CANDIDO, Gabriel Vieira  e  MASSIMI, Marina. The use of oral history methodology in Psychology: perception of individual experiences. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.3, pp. 1039-1053. ISSN 1808-4281.

Researchers of recent history use different information sources to rebuild the past. Through oral history methodology, they can even produce the documents they will analyze. This paper presents three studies in which the authors applied the oral history methodology to three different subjects: 1) the acknowledgement of one Brazilian psychologist's importance, 2) the perception of the work accomplished by employees in childhood education institutions and 3) the reframing of a Holocaust survivor's experience by his descendants. Focusing on people in their own social and cultural contexts, each work produced a historical writing that valorizes different aspects of culture and interpersonal relationships and recognizes that each person is the subject of a historical process. These studies point to the capability of the oral history methodology to valorize the memory of the interviewed people and also as a way to create documents that may help to build the present and future.
