One Thousand Jews He Saved from the Holocaust

$5 suggested donation for members / $8 suggested donation for non-members

A musical celebrity, Bronislaw Huberman toured worldwide and played for European royalty.  But after witnessing the tragedy of World War I, he committed his phenomenal talent and celebrity to aid humanity. With the rise of Nazism, Huberman began a crusade to create the Palestine Symphony, which later became the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Against nearly impossible obstacles, Huberman created a world-class orchestra of exiles, one of the great cultural achievements of the 20th century. His tireless work ultimately saved nearly one thousand Jews from the Holocaust. 

Josh Aronson is an Academy Award nominated director and a concert pianist.
