I set off to find out what is said and not said in my own familiy and within the German-Turkish-Armenian web of relations. This account is about suspicions, about unknown places that seem familiar and about things we know but cannot fully grasp. What does to remember mean? From Kayseri, Istanbul, Beirut, London and Berlin I constructed my own narrative: a movement setting.
