Pioneer Valley Jewish Film Festival: Orchestra of Exiles
A 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 great musicians to Palestine and formed a symphony that would become the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. With an entourage of allies including Arturo Toscanini and Albert Einstein, Huberman saved close to 1000 Jews - along with the musical heritage of Europe.
Performance by High Strung Ensemble led by Anne-Marie Messbauer
