Supporting Community Collaboration to Inspire and Educate

The Violins of Hope is a collection of more than 50 restored instruments played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. These instruments have survived concentration camps, pogroms and many long journeys to tell remarkable stories of injustice, suffering, resilience and survival. In 2019, JHF funding helped to bring The Violins of Hope to Louisville to facilitate a citywide dialogue about music, art, social justice and free expression. The 10-day program consisted of more than 30 community events, exhibits, performances and educational experiences.
