In 1956, the journalist and photographer Milli Bau set out in a VW-bus to explore the countries along the Silk Road. She spent a longer period of time at some locations, but only passed through others. She later lived in Tehran and worked as a correspondent. Her Rolleiflex and her journal accompanied her on her extraordinary journey, to lands of which some can hardly still be visited today. In her photographs, it is possible to see nearly 20 years of cultural and contemporary history. The publication is a document of contemporary history by a travelling journalist who left Germany in the 1950s and found herself in the world. Milli Bau is an outstanding example of the life of a woman who should not be forgotten.
