Abstract : After the death of Léon Blum, his former chief of staff André Blumel established himself as one of the main guardians of his memory, but also as the most unique. As a unitarian left-wing socialist and ultimately a dissident of the French Section of the Workers’ International (SFIO), Blumel nonetheless carried out his commemorative work as a true friend. This in turn raises the question of how he stands in relation to history, as well as in relation to the other standard-bearers of Blum’s memory on the Left, the Society of Friends of Léon Blum, other left-wing socialist dissidents like him, and the Communists. He thus constitutes an excellent vantage point from which to investigate this little-known commemorative space, of which he was one of the most prominent actors before helping to federate it.
