At one point in our lives, we all regret that we didn’t write down the stories our
parents, grandparents or friends used to tell.
Everybody has a unique story to share. A story that should live on. A story that should be told now otherwise it might be too late. A story about childhood, school years, old loves and friendships, family life, work, travelling or anything else that we consider important.
It is time to capture these stories and pass them on to the generations to come.
We invite you to a special journey that takes you back into your memories – a unique experience from the moment you start thinking about ANAGYBETŰS book till you get the final product and share it with the people close to you. Through personal interviews with our experienced writers, you create an exclusive book which is about you.
Creating a ‘digital story’ of their memories – using photos, music, text and video – can help dementia patients open up to their fears and move into optimism. This is the key conclusion of a recent research completed at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada.
Participants had weekly sessions with one of the researchers. Starting with a preliminary interview, they quickly moved onto sharing different meaningful stories, selecting one to focus on and building this story further – including writing a script, selecting music, images and photographs and editing the draft story.
It was an intense process. Although many participants were tired after a session, they all felt that it was a beneficial, meaningful and enjoyable process. Working on a personally gratifying activity with a tangible outcome seemed to keep them motivated and eager to continue.
To fully understand the longer-term impact of the process, further investigation is needed. What is clear, however, is that for the participants, talking about memories helped them open up about having dementia, get past their fears and look ahead with optimism.

Many people have already experienced creating and receiving their ANAGYBETŰS book. Here is what they say.
Everybody has a magical special story. We should share more of these life stories with one another as this is our true heritage. It has been an honour to put the story of a grandmother into words.
I’m very happy that with the help of ANAGYBETŰS I have finally managed to capture the adventurous life story of my grandmother. It was an exciting process and the book is beautiful.
I find the ANAGYBETŪS book a fantastic idea, as it has given me a unique opportunity to thank my father for all what he has done for me – both professionally and privately.
It has been a great experience to relive the old times, the competitions and travels. Bringing up the memories was energising and entertaining. Now my children and grandchildren can also read about how I lived, competed and what the ‘golden age’ of Hungarian hairdressing looked like.
It was a special experience to get immersed in my parents’ story. With the help of ANAGYBETŰS, I could deeply connect with their life – see them in their youth, feel how they fought for and eventually found happiness together. I’m very happy that now my grandchildren can also read the incredible tale of their 64-year long marriage.
