Film Screening: Orchestra of Exiles

Wednesday, March 12, 2014, 7:00 pm
U-M Hillel

Featuring Itzhak Perlman, Zubin Mehta, Pinchas Zukerman, Joshua Bell and others, Orchestra of Exiles is the suspenseful chronicle of how one man helped save Europe’s premiere Jewish musicians from obliteration by the Nazis during WWII.

In the early 1930’s Hitler began firing Jewish musicians across Europe. Overcoming extraordinary obstacles, violinist Bronislaw Huberman moved these great musicians to Palestine and formed a symphony that would become the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.

Join University of Michigan Hillel for this screening in advance of Israel Philharmonic Orchestra’s performance at Hill Auditorium on Saturday, March 15.
