Stories from the Violins of Hope

First-of-Its-Kind Show Brings Stories of Surviving Holocaust Violins to New Generations

This is a unique 55-minute theatrical presentation with music — the first to tell the story of the famed collection of stringed instruments that survived the Holocaust. Bring this live stage version or film to your community!

Watch the trailer!

The stringed survivors were brought back to life – and to the world – by a family of violin restorers spanning three generations. Luthier Amnon Weinstein took what might have become an exhibit of ruined instruments, restored them and put them into the hands of musicians all over the world so that a new generation can hear them. The survivors of the Holocaust will not be here forever, but these violins will continue to tell their stories for generations to come.
