Karen Gershon was an English author and poet who was fifteen years old when she came to England on a Kinder transport. She wrote fiction, nonfiction, and poetry about her Kind experience. This article focuses on the relationship between Gershon, her mother, and her own two daughters and how this is reflected in her poetry. The first section will give a short overview of her life, taken mainly from her own writings, followed by an interpretation of her poems in the second.
