Holocaust Victims’ Violins to be Used in Monaco Concert

By: JTA

The Philharmonic Orchestra of Monte-Carlo will perform a “Violins of Hope” concert in Monaco featuring

Several violins of Jewish Holocaust victims murdered by the Nazis

The concert will be held May 5 at Monaco’s Grimaldi Forum, and the stories of their owners will be told, according to a report in the Nice, France Matain daily.

The idea was initiated by Smadar Eisenberg, president of Friends of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Monte-Carlo association, who obtained the instruments from the atelier of Amnon Weinstein – an Israeli violin maker who for years has been collecting and restoring musical instruments belonging to Holocaust victims.

The life stories of the instruments’ owners will be told during the concert along with other biographies of musicians who lived through the Holocaust, including that of Alma Rosé, a conductor of the Auschwitz women’s orchestra and niece to the composer Gustav Mahler.

Additionally, homage will be paid at the concert to Hans Krasa and Gideon Klein – two Jewish musicians who continued to compose until their deaths in the Nazis’ gas chambers.

All proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Hebrew University’s neurology research center.
