During the move of my grandmother, an archive map of twenty six years of precisely detailed slides (diapositives) was found, showing the great devotion of my grandfather for archiving and preserving a family story. This work is a first attempt to dive into his archive, and to search for the reason why he kept it so precise. In the audio recording, my grandmother talks about my grandfather and his archive.
