On November 13, 2020, The Florida Holocaust Museum partnered with Hold On To Your Music, the USC Shoah Foundation, Echoes and Reflections, and the Holocaust Memorial and Resource Center of Florida during Holocaust Remembrance Week to livestream a theatrical performance of The Children of Willesden Lane. The performance is based on the bestselling book by Mona Golabek and is about the power of music and how one teenage refugee, Lisa Jura, held onto her dreams, survived the Holocaust and inspired a generation of her contemporaries.
If you were unable to attend the performance, we invite you to watch our On Demand recording by clicking on the link below.
Copies of the book will be available through The Florida Holocaust Museum’s online Teaching Trunks on OverDrive in 2021. Educators at the Museum are also happy to assist you with showing the performance in your classroom and providing supplementary resource material to go along with the performance and the book.
