The Violins of Hope exhibition will showcase a selection of approximately 20 violins from the collection of over 70 that were played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. Amnon Weinstein began collecting and restoring the violins more than 20 years ago, and the collection is dedicated to the 400 family members he lost in World War II. Since then, the instruments have been played by prominent musicians in venues worldwide, giving voice not only to the owners of the violins, but also to the millions of Jewish people who perished. 

The exhibition will include a unique educational opportunity through the Violins of Hope APP which will provide supplemental material and allow the visitor to engage in an intimate musical experience. Expanding on educational materials developed by Facing History & Ourselves whose mission is to help students learn about hatred and bigotry so they can stop them from happening in the future, the exhibition will offer tours and programs for all grades, faith-based organizations, congregations and social justice agencies.
