The story of Jewish refugee and poet Karen Gershon, who escaped from Germany to Britain in 1938 at the age of 15, will be told in Karen’s Way – A Kindertransport Life,  at Seven Arts Leeds on Saturday 25 January at 7.30pm. The play, a dramatic dialogue between her mature and her girlhood self, harnesses her poetry to recapture her story. One of her best-known poems, 'I was not there', describes her feelings of guilt at not being there when her parents died in the Holocaust. More details
