With this conference we are celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the Mössbauer effect. With twenty years one reaches the age of maturity and it then seems appropriate to remember and recount some of the events of childhood. As you all know, the first paper was published in 1958, but there is still some darkness (and room for further research) concerning the creative early moments - in other words, how Mössbauer "fathered" his effect. Unfortunately, Rudolf Mössbauer could not come to this celebration and give us further details on this point.
