    Violins of Hope: Strings of the Holocaust, narrated by Academy Award-winner Adrien Brody, is a documentary featuring Israeli violinmaker Amnon Weinstein and his efforts to restore violins recovered from the Holocaust. Some were played by Jewish prisoners in concentration camps; others belonged to the Klezmer musical culture, which was all but destroyed by the Nazis. From their amazing stories and Weinstein's mission to collect and restore the instruments comes the inspiration for this one-hour documentary.

    About the violin maker:

    Amnon Weinstein, one of the most respected violin makers in the world, has spent the last two decades locating and restoring violins that were played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. His work began with locating violins that were silenced by the Holocaust and painstakingly piecing them back together so they could be brought to life again on the concert stage.
