Featuring Itzhak Perlman, Zubin Mehta, Pinchas Zukerman, Joshua Bell and others, this suspenseful documentary chronicles how one man helped save Europe’s premiere Jewish musicians from obliteration by the Nazis during WW II. In the early 1930’s, Hitler began firing Jewish musicians across Europe. Overcoming extraordinary obstacles, violinist Bronislaw Huberman moved these great musicians to Palestine and formed a symphony that would become the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. With courage, resourcefulness and an entourage of allies including Arturo Toscanini and Albert Einstein, Huberman saved close to 1,000 Jews – along with the musical heritage of Europe.

“It’s amazing a Hollywood retelling hasn’t happened already.” – New York Daily News
