Yes. Else, it can mean "selective forgetting" (regarding social memory: erasing events from histories; hiding shameful episodes under the rug in hopes that as a nation/people, you can all forget about them).

In future, you may want to refer to Wikipedia or a quick Google search for easy questions about definitions.
