Woodhouse Players present an amatuer production of KINDERTRANSPORT by Diane Samels "At its heart, the play is about that universal and timeless aspect of human exerience: the separation of a child from its parent. Every person on earth, whatever their age, can relate to that" Diane Samuels The German word 'Kindertransport' translated literally into English means 'the transport of children' it was how Jewish parents, in desperation, tried to get their children out of the growing Nazi territory. In Britain a coalition of Jewish, Quaker and other groups appealed to Parliament, which agreed to admit a limited number of refugee children provided each posted a £50 bond 'to assure their ultimate resettlement'. Between December 1938 and September 1939 the Refugee Children's Movement brought over 10,000 refugee children, of these 7,482 were Jewish. The play Kindertransport reveals the story of Evelyn/Eva who was seperated from her parents and sent on the train to England. It exposes the secrets of her past and her heritage to a Daughter who had no idea her mother had a past. It also deals with loss. The loss of Eva's childhood and the letting go of her own daughter 40 years on. First performed by the Soho Theatre Company in 1993 the production was last revived in 2007 by the Shared Experience Theatre Company.
