Orchestra of exiles [videorecording] / Aronson Films and United Channel Movies ; produced, written, & directed by Josh Aronson.
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. With courage, resourcefulness and an entourage of allies including Arturo Toscanini and Albert Einstein, Huberman saved nearly 1000 Jews-and guaranteed the survival of Europe's musical heritage.
