Summary/Abstract: The author discusses the subject of collective memory understood metaphorically as a journey (stages, equipment, wanderers) as well as mechanisms of memory based on nomadic motifs. Those nomadic motifs, which consist of the schematic and individualizing elements, are connected to particular types of collective memory: communicative and cultural; functional and accumulative. The role of those nomadic motifs in collective memory has been showcased on the basis of contemporary variations of the story of Cinderella.
