About Violins of Hope:
Violins of Hope tells the remarkable stories of violins played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. Today these instruments serve not only as powerful reminders of an unimaginable experience but also reinforce key lessons of tolerance, inclusion, and diversity that are pertinent now as well as for future generations. Through concerts, museum exhibition and comprehensive education programs, children, adults, educators and seniors will learn, connect and understand more deeply the significance of the Holocaust, the lessons learned and how these lessons apply to our world today.
Israeli violin maker, Amnon Weinstein, has devoted the last 20 years to locating and restoring the violins of the Holocaust as a tribute to those who were lost, including 400 of his own relatives. He calls these the Violins of Hope. Mr. Weinstein has restored over 60 violins as a way to reclaim his lost heritage, give a voice to the victims, and reinforce positive messages of hope and harmony.
