Ends of a Family Story

Project overview
Student name

Degree level
Year of project
My grandfather was born in Czechoslovakia and came over to Hungary illegally when he was 20. His motherland appears as a mystical paradise in the family legend.  But how do I connect to this distant past and my grandfather’s homeland? How can I remember someone else’s memories and traumas? In my series, I am searching for answers to these questions.
