Violins of Hope

In January 2015, on the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, musicians of the Berliner Philharmoniker played violins that had once belonged to victims of the Holocaust. In this film we meet the people who made this extraordinary concert possible – and of course the instruments themselves, each of which has its own moving story to tell.
