One performance can change the world. Experience the inspirational story of Holocaust survivor Lisa Jura, brought to life by her daughter, Mona Golabek.
A partnership between Hold On To Your Music Foundation, USC Shoah Foundation, Echoes and Reflections, the Institute for Holocaust Education, the Jewish Community Relations Council, and the Jewish Federation of Omaha.
This program is generously sponsored by the Henry Davis Family Foundation, Rich & Fran Juro, and the Lozier Foundation.
Set in Vienna in 1938 and in London during the Blitzkrieg, The Children of Willesden Lane tells the true story of Lisa Jura, a young Jewish musician who is dreaming about her concert debut at the storied Musikverein concert hall. When new ordinances are issued under the Nazi regime, everything changes for Lisa, except her love of music and the pursuit of her dream.
Community members and the general public are invited to attend this heart-stirring show on March 28 at 7pm at the Holland Performing Arts Center. Virtuoso Mona Golabek will perform some of the world’s most revered piano compositions as she shares her mother’s riveting story of survival.
