Kindertransport, from Tuesday 17th to Saturday 21st April, is a timely drama about a Manchester woman’s struggle in 1980 to come to terms with her past in Hamburg 1938, as a nine year old Jewish child facing the threat of World War II. Forced onto a train by her desperate mother, Eva arrives in Liverpool Street Station, where she is handed over to strangers.
This deeply moving production marks the 80th anniversary of the Kindertransport, when thousands of Jewish children were ferried to safety from Austria and Germany. You can join a Preshow Talk on Fri 20 April at 6 pm with Dr Edward Packard from the University of Suffolk, outlining the history and legacy of the Kindertransport.
