Description

This includes Remembrance Readings of plays from the Holocaust Theater Catalog done by numerous organizations led by Theaters, Museums, Universities, Artists and Educators. All of this takes place in the attic of Evelyn's house, which supposedly represents Evelyn's psyche. Also available: Diane Samuels' Kindertransport: The author's guide to the play, invaluable for anyone studying, teaching or performing the play. Brutally separated from her German Jewish parents at the age of nine, Eva is brought to England with the promise of a new life.

Eva and Lil both eventually become at peace with one another and get on well; Eva is shown as gradually losing her Jewish roots. Eva is at a Manchester train station waiting for her parents, who promised they would secure their visas and reunite with Eva in England, when a station guard approaches her. Eva Schlesinger, daughter of Helga and Werner, is sent away to live with a foster carer in Manchester, England, temporarily until her parents find work and move to England too. These pioneering techniques are found in Enacting History: A Practical Guide to Teaching the Holocaust through Theater published by Routledge Press.The play enjoyed a season in London's West End, playing at the Vaudeville Theatre from 9 September to 30 November 1996. Renowned theatre company Shared Experience also revived the play to great acclaim for a regional tour in 2007. In 1939, at the start of the play’s earlier timeline, Helga sends her young daughter Eva to live in England. The play also focuses on the now assimilated and completely dislocated Eva’s alienation from her actual mother, a survivor of the Holocaust, and the discovery by Faith, Eva’s daughter, of her mother’s unspoken past.

The play tells the story of how nine-year-old Eva, a German Jewish girl, is sent by her parents on the Kindertransport to start a new life with a foster family in Britain just before the outbreak of World War Two. Set Text: Kindertransport is a set text for GCSE English Literature (AQA) and AS/A-Level English Literature (WJEC).Knight Foundation and private donors, it was gifted to the University of Miami, Sue and Leonard Miller Center for Contemporary Judaic Studies, Dr. Kindertransport won the 1992 Verity Bargate Award and was subsequently staged by the Soho Theatre Company at the Cockpit Theatre in London in 1993.
