Violins of Hope, Encore Performance! Back by Popular Demand

Event Date and Time:

February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

We are excited to announce an ENCORE PERFORMANCE of the Violins of Hope Concert for all those who were unable to attend the Violins of Hope Exhibition Grand Opening on January 7, 2024.

The Violins of Hope Exhibition, which opened on January 7, 2024, will be on display at the Holocaust Documentation & Education Center until April 15, 2024, showcasing 72 violins, violas, and cellos, collected and restored since the end of the Holocaust by Amnon, and Avshalom Weinstein, a father and son team of violin makers, based in Israel.

The Violins of Hope Exhibition is the culmination of five years of planning. This exhibition will provide an extraordinary opportunity to teach the Holocaust through music and culture. Each of these instruments belonged to Jewish musicians before and during the Holocaust. Each instrument tells a story—from the violin that was thrown out of a cattle car, on the way from France to Auschwitz, to the violin that was buried under snow in Holland, to the violin that saved the lives of people who played in a concentration camp orchestra.

These instruments represent the resistance, hope, resilience, and memory of the musicians who played them before, during, and after the Holocaust. If you have not yet seen this exhibition, please don’t miss it. Visitors will learn about the stories of the amazing musicians who played these instruments and how their memories live on today as these instruments play once again on Tuesday, February 20, 2024
