As the Holocaust Documentation & Education Center continues to feature and offer a wide variety of topics on the Holocaust, today we are adding the following program:

Program:  The Children of Willesden Lane

Platform:  This free program can be viewed here.

Honor Holocaust Education Week by joining students across Florida for this special event. Students and educators will experience a 45-minute livestreamed event including a theatrical performance and concert based on the best-selling book The Children of Willesden Lane. They will also have opportunities to interact with author, performer and virtuoso concert pianist, Mona Golabek.

Hold On To Your Music, USC Shoah Foundation and Echoes & Reflections will launch the first statewide Willesden READS with this performance on November 13th, thanks to the vision and leadership of The Florida Holocaust Museum and The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida.

The Story
The Children of Willesden Lane is the best-selling book 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. Today’s worldwide humanitarian crises and the importance of standing up against bigotry and hatred are reflected in the continued, growing relevance of this book.
