Part of the Heinemann Plays For 11-14 series
Just prior to the outbreak of WWII, thousands of children were saved from the horror of the Holocaust by being evacuated to Britain in the 'Kindertransport'.
It was a humane initiative in the face of Nazi oppression of the Jews, but its hidden legacy was the trauma experienced by these children suddenly separated from their parents.
Eva is transported to England but her parents fail to escape Germany.
She changes her name and begins the process of denial of her roots but is haunted by her memories.
It is only when her own daughter dicovers some letters in their attic that Eva is forced to confront the truth about the past.
