The first exhibition of the project that took place in March 2018 as part of the Youth Conference of the Association of Students in Israel, at the Tel Aviv Museum, was dedicated to the memory of Haim Kaufman who was born on January 11, 1918 in Bucharest, Romania. Haim was a Holocaust survivor and was released by the Russian army. Immigrated to Israel and served in the defense. Chaim and his wife Rebecca had twins. His granddaughter Keren gave birth to her first child in 2014, thus making him a great grandfather. Keren was photographed next to him while pregnant with her daughter. Months before Haim's death, he got to know his great-granddaughter. His picture continues to tell his story to this day.
