Screening of Orchestra of Exiles
Some stories get lost in the turmoil of their times. It is often only in retrospect that we can discover the true shapers of history. One such man is the prodigious Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman. Orchestra of Exiles explores this great man's 4-year odyssey, which culminates in the founding of the orchestra that would become the Israel Philharmonic. [...] During the darkest days of a Europe being torn apart by antisemitism and Nazi aggression, Huberman's extraordinary efforts saved hundreds of Jewish families from the approaching Holocaust and his achievements changed the landscape of cultural history."
