Children of Willesden Lane, The Lisa Jura, a 14 year old Jewish girl, leaves Vienna for London aboard a Kinderstransport just before the outbreak of WW2. In this inspiring and heart-breaking memoir, Lisa's struggle to realise her dream of becoming a concert pianist unites the little community at 243 Willesden Lane - a refugee hostel where 30 Jewish children wrestle with their various dreams and nightmares. This account of refugees in wartime London has a particular poignancy for those of us who live in the locality it recreates so vividly.
