National audienceThis study aims at demonstrating the historical significance of the collection Bod kyi rig gnas lo rgyus dpyad gzhi'i rgyu cha bdams bsgrigs (lit. Selection of source materials for the study of the Tibetan history and the culture; Chin. Xizang wenshi ziliao dieji). It consists of 28 volumes published between 1982 and 2010 on the initiative of the Consultative political conference of the Chinese people in the Tibet autonomous region. We will first retrace the general undertaking of the Wenshi ziliao in the People's Republic of China and present its recent revaluation by the historians of the Chinese world. This historical background in TAR will allow us to situate the evolution of the editorial policy of the collection produced in TAR within the political context which has prevailed there since the 1980s. Finally we will propose a preliminary evaluation of the contents of the testimonies published in the collection by bringing to light certain aspects of the collective memory hereby produced
