This study covers the narratives of primary school students about the official ceremonies in the 1970s’ Turkey. The objective of the paper is to discover what they can remember about these ceremonies. While doing this, being loyal to their original expressions what they had lived during the ceremonies, what preparations they had done before the ceremonies and how these ceremonies had taken place in their minds are reflected. The students’ narratives particularly present the 23th of April and 10th of November as ceremonies. Here, the oral history method performs an important function. We can have the opportunity of how the children occupying a significant part of a society and having limited information about only in the official documents have social events in their memories.
