Join us this fall for a unique Tapestry performance featuring Mona Golabek.
Lisa Jura was a child piano prodigy born in Vienna, Austria. She came to England as a refugee in 1938 as part of the Kindertransport rescue operation and settled in a Jewish hostel on Willesden Lane. Throughout the conflicts of WWII, Lisa clung to the last words her mother said to her at the train station: “Hold on to your music…it will be your best friend.” Deeply inspired by her mother’s story, Lisa’s daughter Mona Golabek is now a skilled concert pianist that travels the globe sharing the story of her mother’s courage, passion, and resilience.

Sponsored by the Libby Temkin Endowment for the Arts, and by the Nathan & Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center.
