Kindertransport is the poignant story of nine-year-old Eva Schlesinger who, in 1938, was put aboard a train with other Jewish children and evacuated from Nazi Germany in a little-known rescue operation called the kindertransport. She is taken in and raised by an English woman. Torn between her German heritage and her desire to wipe the terrifying experience from her memory, Eva attempts to become "English" herself.
Based upon autobiographic accounts from kindertransport children, this play focuses on Eva at four points in her life. We bear witness to the wealth of emotions exhibited by Eva as she tries to comprehend the cultural differences between her old and new families and all the while learning to cope with her painful past.
This is a moving and thought-provoking play about mothers, daughters and the powerful need for reconciliation. Hi Mom. It tells a story of survival which is both captivating and, ultimately, uplifting.
