Across the Land and the Water – The Two Journeys of the Family Basch, follows the work of British painter/film-maker Barbara Loftus, in researching and interpreting her Jewish mother’s journey into exile.

Barbara knew little of her mother Hildegard’s pre-war German life until, in old age, she began – unprompted – to speak about it… There are two journeys: Hildegard’s – West to the safety of England – and the ultimate journey East, of the family she left behind in Berlin.
