“Orchestra of exiles aspires to a level of primary research that other historical documentaries could take a page from.” The New York Times

Synopsis

The dramatic story of Polish violinist Bronislow Hubermann, who rescued some of the world’s greatest musicians from Nazi Germany, culminating in the formation of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.

In the early 1930s, Hitler began forcing Jewish musicians out of orchestras across central Europe; never before had so many experienced players been jobless simultaneously. The Nazis unwittingly presented a unique opportunity and with the short window of time still available, Huberman dedicated himself to fulfilling a dream.
