Duration   1h

Join the Dallas Holocaust & Human Rights Museum for a virtual book discussion led by their museum educators. This week, they will discuss "The Children of Willesden Lane" (Young Reader's Edition) by Mona Golabek and Lee Cohen. Fourteen-year-old Lisa Jura was a musical prodigy who hoped to become a concert pianist, but when Hitler's armies advanced on pre-war Vienna, Lisa's parents were forced to make a difficult decision. Able to secure passage for only one of their three daughters through the Kindertransport, they chose to send gifted Lisa to London for safety. As she yearned to be reunited with her family while she lived in a home for refugee children on Willesden Lane, Lisa's music became a beacon of hope.

The conversation will take place on the online platform Zoom. The link to join will be sent to all registered guests the day of the program.

Space is limited! Please register for one ticket per device used.

This program is recommended for students in 6th – 12th grade and adults.
