The Violins of Hope Exhibition will remain on display at the Holocaust Documentation &
Education Center until April 15, 2024. The exhibit showcases 72 violins, violas, and cellos, collected and restored since the end of the Holocaust by Amnon, and Avshalom Weinstein, a father and son team of violin makers, based in Israel.

These instruments represent the resistance, hope, resilience, and memory of the musicians who played them before, during, and after the Holocaust.

Each instrument tells a story—from the violin that was thrown out of a cattle car, on the
way from France to Auschwitz, to the violin that was buried under snow in Holland, to the violin that saved the lives of people who played in a concentration camp orchestra.

Reservations are required to attend the free concert. To RSVP Contact Jeanine at 954-929-5690 Ext. 314 or send an email to
