Commemoration is presently the order of the day in many facets of the South African society. With a view of gaining meaningful insight into the phenomenon, this study probes the concept of remembrance as a human way of thinking in order to determine to what extent attention can meaningfully be given to commemorations from the perspective of history as a discipline. The focus is especially directed towards a few theoretical underlying principles concerning realism, the memesis effect and Bordieu's habitus concept. Thought is thereafter given to the relevance of these strategic techniques so as to arrive at a more significant and better understanding of commemorative occasions.
