The Story

    We believe that remembrance makes your life richer. And because we believe that we want you to like to remember. As maybe every father has many little stories to tell as well has ours. But one of these stories might be much bigger then we thought in the first place. Father of 3 children by himself he never had the chance to get to know his own dad. As he was approximatly 4 years old his mother once took him by his hand to leave together with his little sister their beloved home. Everything needed to be really quick. It was allowed to take with the most important things only. And already in the city from which they started he was forbidden to take just one glance behind.

    Nevertheless he turned around and looked back, of course. Possibly he would have done it anyway. Or it was just his mother mentioning something of not-to-turn-around that has arosed his interest. So he turned around. And looked back. And he saw a green meadow and grass and an old church tower. Some houses. Water. A creek or a lake. And the clap his mother gave him because of that he still can feel pretty much until today.

    It is this last look behind that accompanies him still. Because it was a look back in a time which for him and everybody he knows shall never happen again. And this remembrance faded. What it means to be a refugee he understood much later. His father died shortly after their escape. And all his life his mother consequently kept silent about their family history and about their escape.

    Years later. His children are grown up adults meanwhile. He visits the city from which they escaped in those days. Which wasnt possible for such a long time. Finally. Back. And then this moment for which there are no words at all. An invisible hand led him to this special place. Here, where now he stands almost 60 years later as a worldly-wise man seemingly coincidental he was running around as a young boy arms open wide in circles. Yesterday was just now. And has never stopped. For him since this day graspable with his own hands again: the stuff his memories are made of. As woven from many threads which align to long believed to be lost patterns and to new old tales finally again.

    Now it is known that memories are sometimes seems to be more like a sculptural modeling compound then a carved in stone scuplture. Because they are deformed in a human life by many factors. Even it was approved in epigenetical investigations in the meantime that we are not remembering our own lifes only. But as well experiences of our forefathers and the social environment they use to live in. So we all carry memories with us from humans we never met and from places we have never been. And all that influences our feelings, thoughts and actions. And so the results of our actions. And so will those who will come after us. Because we create today the memories of tomorrow. Across different cultures.

The Vision

    Thats why we believe it is right to pay close attention to memories. Whichever direction we may came from. How rich could our lifes become, through all the experiences we remember together? Let us keep on weaving the threads of so many little stories. And the first maybe little one will be really big someday.
