Hold On to Your Music : The Inspiring True Story of the Children of Willesden Lane, Paperback / softback Book

Hold On to Your Music : The Inspiring True Story of the Children of Willesden Lane Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Sonia Possentini

Paperback / softback


In pre-World War II Vienna, Lisa Jura was a musical prodigy who hoped to become a concert pianist.

But when enemy forces threatened the city -- especially its Jewish population -- Lisa's parents were forced to make a difficult decision.

They secured passage for only one of their three daughters through the Kindertransport, and chose to send gifted Lisa to London for safety.

As she yearned to be reunited with her family where she lived in a home for refugee children on Willesden Lane, Lisa's music became a beacon of hope for all of her peers. A story of the power of music to uplift the human spirit, this compelling tribute has moved and inspired hundreds of thousands of students and adults across the globe.

Now is the perfect time to bring this timeless story of hope to even younger audiences as Mona Golabek's mission to transform historical testimony into youth empowerment has driven many requests for shorter, illustrated formats.
