Violins That Survived The Holocaust Have Come To Cincinnati For A One-Night Only Concert

It’s easy to get bogged down in the stress of our mere existence, to allow the problems in our lives to outweigh the positives. But we can’t allow that to happen or we lose sight of all the good. In the face of sadness, danger, and immense pain, we must choose strength. In the words of C.S. Lewis, “Courage, dear heart.” Yes, must choose courage, too—and hope.

"Where there were violins, there was hope."
— Amnon Weinstein, Founder of Violins of Hope

This coming week, you will have a chance to see a choice like that in action. Presented by the Holocaust & Humanity Center, the Violins of Hope concert is taking place on Tuesday, January 23 at Music Hall.

Event description, per the website:

Eight violins, once silenced by the Holocaust will be the center of a concert featuring Cincinnati’s finest musicians. An evening of poignant music, interwoven with experiences of local Holocaust survivors and the incredible stories of the violins will provide an emotional journey not to be missed.
