Film Screening: Orchestra of Exiles (Central Library)

Join National Music Centre and Calgary Jewish Federation at Central Library for a screening of Orchestra of Exiles — a suspenseful chronicle of how one man helped save Europe's premier Jewish musicians from obliteration by the Nazis during World War II. In three years, Bronislaw Huberman transformed from a world-renowned violinist to a humanitarian racing against time.

Presented by Calgary Public Library in partnership with Holocaust and Human Rights: Commemoration and Education Department of Calgary Jewish Federation and the National Music Centre.

Make sure to visit the international exhibit, Violins of Hope, running at Studio Bell from May 3 to June 16. An impactful exhibition of historic string instruments that survived the Holocaust, it features over 40 instruments and the personal stories behind them. The meticulously restored instruments that once belonged to Jewish victims and survivors of the Holocaust share the story that wherever there is music, there is hope.
