This paper is not a history of the discovery of the strangeness, but rather a contribution to such a history, consisting of personal reminiscences. The atmosphere and ideas of the period 1951-1953 are described. The author explains the reasons that led him to introduce the concept of the strangeness and how he had to convince people and to overcome oppositions.
