Violins of Hope

The Violins of Hope are a collection of more than 50 restored instruments played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. These instruments have survived concentration camps, pogroms and many long journeys to tell remarkable stories of injustice, suffering, resilience and survival.

The Violins of Hope are now giving voice to the horrors of the Holocaust as part of a series of programs being held in cities in Europe, Israel and the United States. The Violins of Hope are being brought to Louisville to facilitate a citywide dialogue about music, art, social justice and free expression.

This program was made possible by a collaborative effort of the Jewish Federation of Louisville and these partners.
