What's the name of the pyschological phenomenon where a person recalls something that did not happen ?

Answer:

The Mandela Effect (false memory)

A false memory is a psychological phenomenon where a person recalls something that did not happen or that something happened differently from the way it happened. In 2010, this shared false memory phenomenon was dubbed the "Mandela Effect" by self-described "paranormal consultant" Fiona Broome, in reference to a false memory she reported of the death of South African leader Nelson Mandela in the 1980s (who was at the time still alive), which she claimed was shared by "perhaps thousands" of other people.
