Özet

The reality and social memory of the Great War differed from previous wars on different aspects where the battle field was integrated into the political, diplomatic and military dimensions, preferences of war and this was widely affected from the economic, cultural, and ideological context. In such conditions how we can memorize and construct memory places to remember and commemorate such a bloody event in Eastern and Western fronts during the Centenary of the war? In this paper the theoretical perspectives related to social memory and memory places are discussed with respect to different remembering and commemorating experiences in Eastern and Western fronts, namely Gallipoli in Ottoman State and Alsace Lorraine in the Eastern front of France during the Great War.
