This work is a development of my last realization in Ludenscheid on the Erlöserkirche. When I came here in the spring for the celebration of the 750 anniversary of the city, I spent a lot of time in the Ludenscheid’s city archive. I mix the real stories of people that lived in Ludenscheid with my memories and imagination, to the point where they are overlapping each other, and the lines between truth and fantasy are blurred. A great joint family picture is created, and there is one unchangeable guide to it: my grand mother from my father’s side.
