“THE CHILDREN OF WILLESDEN LANE:
A MEMOIR OF MUSIC, LOVE AND SURVIVAL”
Based on the book by Mona Golabek & Lee Cohen
“A true story that captures the power of one person’s dedication to music and immense love for the human.” – Zubin Mehta
Aspiring pianist Lisa Jura was 14 when her family put her on a Kindertransport train in Vienna. In this alternately heart-wrenching and uplifting story, that traces the six years Lisa Jura spent in London, where she found surrogate families in the 31 other young refugees at the Willesden Lane hostel, and in the working-class British women at the East End garment factory.
The author, Ms. Golabek, is the founder and president of the non-profit organization Hold On To Your Music, established to use music and share the story of her mother Lisa Jura and of the Holocaust in schools.
