The social memory, which is an increasingly interesting and interdisciplinary field of study in the fields of social sciences, is constructed by political structures by body, space, history and language policies. The social memory, which involves the reckoning and retention of the past, is used to meet the memory of everyone who is the subject of a certain nation-state policy. Each discipline of the social sciences, which is the object of investigation, had to address the issue of memory in a way to understand the human being. Just as in individual memory, repetition is important for forgetting or remembering data in social memory. In this direction, the aim of the study is to examine the reflection of social memory by the political field on the textbooks. For this purpose, the method of the research is designed as a document review and the social studies/ history textbooks we have discussed in this study were analyzed by analyzing the sample of Kut al Amare victory. When the results of the study were evaluated, it is seen that the participants did not remember anything about Kut al Amare victory during their student years and they were not aware of the existence of such information in the textbooks. Most of the participants emphasize that they have learned about Kut al Amare victory from the street posters and some of the mass media such as television and the internet and also most of them think that it is important to include the victory in the textbooks. More than half of the respondents evaluated the political conditions as a reflection on textbooks due to their impact on education.
