A Special Performance
Part 3: On the Kindertransport to England
In this part of her performance, Mona describes the scene at the train station
in Vienna, as hundreds of children, including Lisa, say good-bye to their
parents. We hear of Lisa’s journey, her brief position as a maid at
Peacock Manor, and how Lisa makes her way back to London.
Questions to Discuss With Students
- Think about the moods and feelings evoked by Debussy’s “Clair
de Lune.” How might this piece have been important to Lisa on her
- Why was it so difficult for Lisa not to be able to play the piano while
she was at Peacock Manor?
