Musicologist James A. Grymes will discuss his book, Violins of Hope: Instruments of Hope and Liberation in Mankind’s Darkest Hour.  An inspiring testament to the strength of the human spirit and the power of music, Violins of Hope tells the remarkable stories of violins played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust.  Israeli violin maker, Amnon Weinstein, is dedicated to bringing these inspirational instruments back to life.  Violins of Hope is the winner of 2014 National Jewish Book  Award in the Holocaust category.

Blending stories from Violins of Hope with scenes from the documentary Amnon’s Journey, Dr. Grymes will discuss the various

roles the violin played in Jewish lives during the Holocaust.  For some musicians the instrument was a liberator; for others it was a

savior that spared their lives.  For many the violin provided comfort in mankind’s darkest hour and in at least one case helped avenge murdered family members.  Above all, the violins of the Holocaust represented strength and optimism for the future.  Wherever there were violins, there was hope.
