Diane Samuels' play about families, secrets and survival takes us to the days of the impending Holocaust. As conditions deteriorated in Germany in the 1930s, many tried in vain to escape. But thanks to a British humanitarian effort, about 10,000 Jewish children from Germany and neighboring countries were relocated to live with families in the United Kingdom, while their parents stayed behind. This passage to freedom became known as Kindertransport.
The audio drama stars Jane Kaczmarek and Susan Sullivan, and includes a conversation with Kindertransport survivor Hilda Fogelson.

Not what I thought it would be, but still enjoyed this play.
Good acting, clever storyline.
Not one I would listen to again with enthusiasm. One for acquired taste.
