The Children of Willesden Lane is the powerful true story of Lisa Jura, who fled Nazi-occupied Vienna on the kindertransport as a child. Jura was one of 10,000 young refugees who were separated from her parents and brought to England for safety before World War II. Our online companion to the book features musical selections to accompany the text, a study guide for middle and high school classrooms, and short videos.
