The Mutti Journals; A Mother's Legacy
In 1939 Asta Jacob sent her young daughter, Ilsa out of Nazi Germany.
It was the last time they would see each other, though Ilsa, alone in England, tried not to give up hope.
All through the war she read and re-read her mother's letters, and started a journal to keep a record of everything that was happening to her, in hopes of one day sharing it with her Mutti, her mother Asta.
Reporter Pam Berman brings us a documentary about Ilsa's life, told through Asta's letters, Ilsa's journals... and the memories of her daughter Judith.
