Summary/Abstract: The paper aims at mapping out the place of life stories between the poles of history and memory as defined by M. Halbwachs, J. Le Goff, P. Nora, T. Todorov. Examples are given of the authenticity, subjectivity and commitedness of life stories, which bring them closer to the pole of memory. At the same time, a number of cases of referring to "external authorities", generalization, distancing and relativization of the past point to the rationality of history. The fusion of memory and history in life stories suggests a possible redefinition of the relation between them based on a reappraisal of oral history.
