The Children of Willesden Lane

The Museum, in partnership with the New Orleans Jewish Community Center Holocaust Memorial Committee, proudly presents the critically acclaimed theatrical show The Children of Willesden Lane.

Adapted from her best-selling book, this one-woman performance features concert pianist Mona Golabek. The Grammy-nominated artist uses music to tell her mother’s inspiring story of survival as a teenage Austrian Jewish refugee who pursued her own dream of becoming a pianist.
