This thesis focuses on the fact of colonial events in Cameroonian society in terms of buildings inherited from the French colonial administration. It specifically addresses the central role of history and the memory of colonialism in the development of colonial legacies. Examples from Yaounde and Douala demonstrate the difficulty in objects, be they historical, heritage objects, especially when the Jacobin evades historical truth and attempts to distort collective memory. Finally, the result of this thesis shows that whatever the post-colonial state thinks colonial buildings will only truly become heritage assets when the country’s history has eradicated the complexes and the state induced memory lapses of upon accession to national independence. Moreover, away from this essentially conflictual dimension of colonial legacies in Cameroon, this work also shows that, although dark, the picture is not uniformly black. Conceived under the prism of history and memory, colonial heritage can contribute to welding social bonds
