Following Kristallnacht in November 1938, the Movement for the Care of Children from Germany was formed. In nine months almost 10,000 unaccompanied children were sent to Britain, most of them Jewish. Diane Samuels interviewed adults who were these Kinder, these children who survived the Holocaust, weaving their experiences of loss, guilt, and discovery into the play. “What is the cost of survival?” asks the author’s note, “What future grows out of a traumatized past?”
