Kindertransport (NHB Modern Plays) (Nick Hern Books)
A modern classic about one woman's struggle to come to terms with her past. Brutally separated from her German Jewish parents and brought to England with the promise of a new life, nine-year-old Eva ends up in Manchester. When Eva's parents fail to escape Germany, the child changes her name and begins the process of denial of her roots. It is only when her own daughter discovers some letters in their attic that Eva is forced to confront the truth about the past.
Between 1938 and the outbreak of war, almost 10,000 children, most of them Jewish, were sent by their parents from Germany to Britain. This new edition of Diane Samuels award winning play contains several personal memoirs by children whose lives were saved by the Kindertransport.
