Pioneer Valley Jewish Film Festival: Orchestra of Exiles
The chronicle of how one man helped save many of Europe’s premiere Jewish musicians from obliteration by the Nazis during WWII. Violinist Bronislaw Huberman moved these musicians to Palestine and formed a symphony that would become the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. With courage, resourcefulness and an entourage of allies including Arturo Toscanini and Albert Einstein, Huberman saved close to 1000 Jews.
