Date Tue, Apr 21, 1:30pm - 2:15pm
Duration   45m

During this special webinar by the USC Shoah Foundation, students will explore the topic of resilience-the ability to bounce back from challenges we face, and to hold on to what we already have to help us cope with those challenges. The 45-minute program will feature Mona Golabek, Grammy-nominated concert pianist and author of The Children of Willesden Lane. Ms. Golabek will explore key parts of her book and perform piano classics, guiding students to consider the question: What can I hold on to in my life to help me be resilient in times of change?

About The Children of Willesden Lane

In early 1938, Lisa Jura, a young Jewish girl in Vienna, dreamed that one day she would become a concert pianist. In March, her dreams were shattered. German troops took over Austria, her homeland. She became a refugee, one of about 10,000 children brought to England before World War II as part of the Kindertransport -- a mission to rescue children threatened by the Nazis. Her daughter Mona Golabek and writer Lee Cohen tell her story in The Children of Willesden Lane. The book follows Lisa's coming of age during WWII and her courageous journey to fulfill her dream of music against one of the darkest periods in history.
