People of Note - Mona Golabek

The Children of Willesden Lane is a multi-layered programme that was presented this past week in collaboration with the Cape Town and Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centres. The programme was devised by the concert pianist MONA GOLABEK, whose book called The Children of Willesden is the moving story of her mother, Lisa Jura. Lisa was one of more than 10,000 Jewish children brought to England during World War 2 as part of the kindertransport – a mission to rescue children threatened by the Nazis.
