“Trauma is memorable. You wouldn’t forget incredibly traumatic events.”
“People who undergo severe trauma remember it.” - Hollida Wakefield, Harry MacLean and Ralph Underwager, in the FMSF Newsletter. 
“Memories of trauma are seldom, if ever, truly forgotten.” - Richard McNally. 
“The nature of severe trauma is that you can't forget things… the idea of someone who's 18 years old who had [a traumatic sexual] experience over four days and doesn't remember that it happened is essentially ludicrous.” - Joseph Deltito, in the FMSF Newsletter. 
Elizabeth Loftus – a researcher on the False Memory Syndrome Foundation’s scientific advisory board, who notably critiques the accuracy of recovered memories and argues for the existence of falsely implanted memories – has disagreed with this claim.
Based on the Linda Meyer Williams study mentioned in the previous claim [link] and refutation, Loftus concedes that “Extreme claims such as "if you were raped, you'd remember" are disproven by these findings.” 
In a population of women with documented records of confirmed sexual abuse, Williams found that “38% of women were unable to remember the abuse 17 years later”  and that “one in 10 women (16% of those who recalled the abuse) reported that at some time in the past they had forgotten about the abuse.” 
Linda Meyer Williams’ response to Loftus’ paper. 
The evidence indicates that trauma is memorable for many people, while a small group experiences dissociative amnesia and recovered memories concerning traumatic events. Scientific evidence shows that people react differently to trauma, some of whom find trauma difficult to remember.
