Orchestra of Exiles

Orchestra of Exiles is the story of one man's four-year odyssey which culminated, in 1936, with the creation of a top-flight symphony orchestra in the desert outback of Palestine. This extraordinary feat was accomplished by an eccentric moral powerhouse of a man, a Polish Jew named Bronislaw Huberman who was one of the most famous violinists in the world. Huberman's Jewish musicians were among the best players of Europe; they were escaping a world that would soon be torn apart by Nazi aggression. Huberman's selfless efforts ultimately saved 1000 Jews from the Holocaust and changed the landscape of cultural history.
