Jewish Literary Voices: A Federation Series in collaboration with the Jewish Book Council
Documentary and conceptual art photographer Daniel Levin traveled to the work-shop of Israeli luthier Amnon Weinstein, the founder of the renowned Violins of Hope program, to explore this great man’s life’s mission. In doing so, he uncovered not only beautiful photographic representations of Amnon’s processes of restoration of delicate violins that miraculously survived the Holocaust, but his intimate workshop as well. With Violins and Hope From the Holocaust to Symphony Hall, Levin has brought the workshop out of itself, to be seen by the world for the very first time.
In commemoration of Yom HaShoah, join Daniel for a discussion of his book and learn about the 86 violins that have been restored, fulfilling the goal of transforming tragedy into triumph by bringing violins of the Holocaust back to life.
Purchase the book here and a portion of the proceeds will be donated back to the local Bookstore in Lenox.
