Mona Golabek Exhibit at Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust

On Nov. 3, 2014, LAMOTH is opening a special exhibit and learning experience based on original artifacts from Mona Golabek’s personal collection of photos and documents related to her book, “The Children of Willesden Lane.” The book chronicles the extraordinary life story of Golabek’s mother Lisa Jura, who as a young teen, was forced to leave her family in Vienna, travel to London in a Kindertransport and live out World War II as a refugee. The Kindertransport (German for “children transport”) was a rescue mission that took place during the nine months prior to the outbreak of World War II. The United Kingdom took in nearly 10,000 predominantly Jewish children from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and the Free City of Danzig. The children were placed in British foster homes, hostels, schools and farms. In many cases they were the only members of their families who survived the Holocaust.

Mona Golabek is an author, recording artist, radio host and internationally acclaimed concert pianist. A Grammy Award nominee, Golabek has received numerous accolades, including the Avery Fisher Career Grant and the People's Award of the International Chopin Competition. She is the subject of several PBS television documentaries, including "More Than the Music," which won the grand prize in the 1985 Houston Film Festival, and "Concerto for Mona," featuring Golabek and conductor Zubin Mehta. She has appeared in concert at the Hollywood Bowl, the Kennedy Center, Royal Festival Hall and with major orchestras and conductors worldwide.

The work of Mona Golabek and her sister, the late concert pianist Renee Golabek-Kaye, was inspired by the words their grandmother Malka said to her daughter at the Vienna train station, as Lisa boarded the Kindertransport for safety in London. "Hold on to your music," Malka told her. "It will be your best friend."

The exhibition will feature original music, audio guide narration and reflection by Mona Golabek. Admission is free. For more information, visit the LAMOTH website at www.lamoth.org.

Formerly known as Laurelwood, Studio City is located on the north slope of the Santa Monica Mountains. It was part of the Rancho Ex-Mission San Fernando, a Mexican land grant, and named after the area's studio lot, opened by Mack Sennett in 1927. That studio is now known as CBS Studio Center. As a community that was born out of the entertainment industry, Studio City is regarded as the "Jewel of the Valley," attracting actors, musicians, and writers and serving as a hub of the San Fernando Valley and a gateway to the Westside and Hollywood. Read on and discover hidden gems in Studio City that are worth checking out.
