The Children of Willesden Lane is the story of author and Grammy-nominated concert pianist Mona Golabek’s mother, who fled Vienna during World War II aboard the Kindertransport and triumphed over tragedy to become a concert pianist. The universal themes of Willesden Lane—identity, moral responsibility, acceptance between cultures and artistic appreciation—have been embraced by more than a million students. One high school student in Hoxie, Kansas, wrote, “Lisa Jura inspired me to dream the impossible dream and never give up when you think all is lost.”
