Over the past years, memory has developed as an important theme, as much in public space in general as in the historical field in particular. Now, it can be perceived circulating around historical education. What benefits can we expect from this? After having recalled the modern conception of historical education and its goals, the paper considers, first, the place and role that memory occupies in the field of history, and, second, its possible place and role in the field of history education. Before concluding that the advantages to be drawn from this tendency are not evident, it may be wise to anticipate some effects opposite to what is expected from a modern historical education.
