The KET program Kentucky Life is featuring an episode on last year’s Violins of Hope exhibit in Louisville during the month of April.
Violins of Hope is a collection of string instruments – mostly violins – that survived the Holocaust. Israeli luthier (violin maker) Amnon Weinstein has restored most of them. Today, they travel to cities around the world for exhibits and concerts.
Miriam Ostroff, a Louisville philanthropist who was instrumental (no pun intended) in bringing the collection here, was interviewed for the program.
KET will air the episode aired on April 18 at 8 p.m., April 19 at 4 p.m., April 23 at 6 p.m. and April 23 at 11:30 p.m. It also will air on KET2 on April 20 at 7 p.m.
