JCAT - The J's Cultural Arts Theatre at the MARJCC presents Kindertransport by Diane Samuels
Between 1938 and the outbreak of the war, almost 10,000 children, most of them Jewish, were sent by their parents from Germany to Britain, including 9-year old Eva. When her parents fail to escape, she changes her name and begins the process of denying her roots. It is only when her own daughter discovers some old letters in the attic that Eva is forced to confront the truth.
Anita Hoffer a member of the Kindertransport Association, will speak at the matinee performance on Sunday, October 22 at 2pm.
Anita Loewenberg (now Anita Hoffer) was born in Berlin on June 3, 1933. She was put on train in to London in August 1939. She now lives in Boca Raton and works with other Kindertransport Association members in Florida.
