Winner of the Verity Bargate and Meyer Whitworth Awards, Kindertransport is a moving insight into the complex relationship between mother and daughter, set against the turbulent backdrop of the twentieth century. In the nine months before the outbreak of World WarII, the Kindertransport ferried nearly 10,000, mainly Jewish children fromGermany and Austria to safety. Many would never see their parents again. Brutally separated from her German Jewish parents and brought to England with the promise of a new life, nine-year-old Eva ends up in Manchester. When Eva’s parents fail to escape Germany, the child changes her name and begins a process of denial of her roots. But when her own daughter discovers some long forgotten letters, Eva is finally forced to confront a long-buried truth.
