The Violins of Hope Project is a rare assemblage of string instruments played by European Jews before, during, and after the Holocaust. Fully restored by father and son Israeli luthiers, Amnon and Avshalom Weinstein, these priceless historic instruments are touring the world, bringing together people of all faiths, nationalities and beliefs, in remembrance, musical celebration, and community discourse around issues of peace, justice, human dignity, and common understanding.
In The Artist's Studio: The Workshop of Amnon and Avshalom Weinstein and The Violins of Hope has been developed in partnership with Music at Kohl Mansion Burlingame, producers of the Violins of Hope San Francisco Bay Area Project. The exhibition at NUMU is made possible by the generous support of The Borgenicht Foundation.
