Lisa of Willesden Lane: A True Story of Music and Survival During World War II

The inspiring true story about one girl's escape from the Holocaust to become a concert pianist against all odds, made popular by Mona Golabek's acclaimed theatrical performance and the beloved novel The Children of Willesden Lane is now available in an early chapter book format! In pre-World War II Vienna, musical prodigy Lisa dreams of a future as a concert pianist... but when the Nazis threaten the safety of Jews in Austria, her parents make the difficult decision to send her to London through the Kindertransport. In a home for refugee children, Lisa desperately misses her family, but her music provides her — and all of those around her — with comfort.

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 newly independent readers can read Lisa's stunning story, discovering little-known facts about history and imagining what they would do in Lisa's shoes.
