St. Helena Public Library, St. Helena

WHAT: "In the early 1930s, Hitler began firing Jewish musicians across Europe. Overcoming extraordinary obstacles, violinist Bronislaw Huberman moved these great musicians to Palestine, forming a symphony that would become the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. With courage, resourcefulness, and an entourage of allies, including Arturo Toscanini and Albert Einstein, Huberman saved nearly 1,000 Jews and guaranteed the survival of Europe's musical heritage."


WHY YOU SHOULD GO: In honor of Veteran's Day, St. Helena Public Library has themed their November events "Saving Jewish Musicians & Artists during the Holocaust". Discover this unique story of courage and how the arts were used to save thousands of lives and the heart of a culture during World War II. Dive deep with a short lecture and discussion after the film. 


"I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being."

-Thornton Wilder
