Between 1938 and the outbreak of war, almost 10,000 children, most of them Jewish, were sent by their parents from Germany to Britain...nine year old Eva ends up in Manchester...When Eva’s parents fail to escape Germany, the child changes her name and begins the process of denial of her roots...It is only when her own daughter discovers some old letters in the attic that Eva is forced to confront the truth about her past. Samuels has written the best play about the pain and passion of mother/daughter relationships.

The Nazi gaining of power in the 1930’s signalled a huge escalation of anti-semitic activity. The first organised attack on Jews was in April 1933- a boycott of Jewish businesses was instigated and triggered much violence. Many laws were passed including excluding Jews from public life, their driving licences were revoked, their property confiscated, and finally their citizenship was revoked.
