The Children of Willesden Lane
- Mona Golabek piano
In 1938, a 14-year-old prodigy pianist named Lisa Jura boarded a train in Vienna to travel to London. On the station platform, her mother bade her farewell, telling her, ‘Hold on to your music. It will be your best friend.’ Minutes later, Lisa was on the Kindertransport – the scheme that saved thousands of Jewish children from the Nazis between 1938 and 1940 – with no idea whether she would ever see her family again. Her daughter, Mona Golabek, will perform a one-woman show, telling the story of Lisa's survival and the strength her music brought her throughout her traumatic youth.
