Rottingdean Drama Society presents
By Diane Samuels
Directed by Elaine Eardley
Wednesday 14th – Saturday 17th October 2015
This poignant play follows the life of Eva Schlesinger – a young Jewish girl sent to England on the Kindertransport just before the outbreak of World War Two.
After nights of violence against Jews across Germany and Austria, in November 1938, the British government introduced a program called the Kindertransport (children’s transport), which gave Jewish children – and only children – safe passage to the UK.
The story traces the effects that this early separation of Eva from her mother had throughout her life and particularly on her relationship with her own daughter.
Though fictitious, Kindertransport is based upon many real kinder stories.
