Violins of Hope - Even in the midst of the unspeakable evil of the Holocaust, there was music. In the ghettos and the camps, music was a source of comfort, hope and resistance - a way for the Jews to express themselves and prevent the Nazis from stripping them of their humanity. Some of the Violins of Hope, violins played by Jewish musicians during the holocaust, have been located and restored and this concert gives viewers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear the violins played by world-class musicians, to see them in a stunning exhibition and to learn their individual stories.
