We learn from an online article that our mother was living at 21 Csanády Street in 1944. After reading the article we decide that we want to know everything about that time. As we start to talk to our mother we begin to uncover the past. As we dig deeper and deeper into that past, we learn about family secrets that had never before come to light, our family's embedded memories. We don’t settle only for what we learn from her, we start to investigate in archives and libraries and ask historians to help us understand what our mother would have lived through at that time as a four year old child. We want to know the difficulties she faced when we were already part of her life. On our journey of discovery we encounter some very interesting people and soon realize that every house and every family has similar secrets to hide. In the end, we even find an American relative who we believed to be lost.
