Publisher's Summary

Growing up in a poor Yiddish speaking home in 1950s London, Lillian – then just a teenager – marries charming older man Raymond. One day he takes their children to the local park. But he never returns.

When they reappear 40 years later – the search for the truth begins.

Unfolding like a mystery, we follow Danny Ben-Moshe and his eccentric Jewish family as they unearth secrets, attempt to reconcile, and hear shocking news that sheds a new light on events.

This series builds upon the story from Danny’s award-winning documentary film My Mother’s Lost Children.

wonderful

not only did I enjoy the story, but the lovely lady in this sounds exactly like my grandmother whom I have not seen for 40 years. Thank you for sharing this incredibly touching story.

Sad, gripping and potentially triggering

A nearly unbelievable story about the repercussions of the actions (and inactions) of a young, naive woman in 1950s England whose children are kidnapped by their father. Some of the people in this story are thoroughly unlike able (I'm referring to both parents here) but the story itself is fascinating. Be aware that anyone who has experienced trauma in the form of mental abuse or abandonment at the hands of their parents WILL be triggered by this story.

Very Sad

Such a sad story. I felt most pity for Andrew and understand how he feels after listening to this. It was special hearing everyone's voices and Daniel really cares. I liked how he reacts to his mother etc.

Interesting Story of family drama

This story had so many plot twists. It's hard not to judge the people in the story. It has me asking myself what would I do in that situation. Losing your children 💔 I can only imagine how that effects your mental health. A person's selfish deed leads to a chain of disastrous events. The children and the mothers are the real victims.

Haunting

Most striking is the way the story repeats across generations, as told by many family members.

Devastating - but absolutely worth the listen

Fantastic way to see just how much the story is changed by perspective. And how family trauma continues to cause trauma through the line until it's addressed.
