Between 1938 and the outbreak of World War II, thousands of Jewish children living in Germany were sent to Great Britain on the Kindertransport. This move saved them from the concentration camps their parents would soon face. Diane Samuels’ play offers deep insight into themes of abandonment, identity, survivors’ guilt, and the effects of a traumatic past on those near to us. The story follows Eva, a 9 year old Kind, and the effect her mother’s fateful decision had on a generation of women.
