Violins of Hope: Strings of the Holocaust
March 8, 2020, Carmel High School Center for the Performing Arts 3 PM Film and 4:15 PM Program and performance by violinist Cookie Segelstein (special program ticket required)
About the Film Violins of Hope: Strings of the Holocaust, narrated by Academy Award-winner Adrien Brody, is a documentary featuring Israeli violinmaker Amnon Weinstein and his efforts to restore violins recovered from the Holocaust. Some were played by Jewish prisoners in concentration camps; others belonged to the Klezmer musical culture, which was all but destroyed by the Nazis. From their amazing stories and Weinstein's mission to collect and restore the instruments comes the inspiration for this one-hour documentary.
Following the film, Berkeley Klezmer violinist Cookie Segestein will play some of the actual violins which are touring the West Coast from January until March 2020. She will talk about the history of Eastern European music prior to the Holocaust and tell stories about the violins and her family. Cookie's mother is an Auschwitz survivor. The tour of the Violins of Hope coincides with the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

The Carmel Jewish Film Festival is now entering its tenth year. Through the power and artistry of cinema, the festival seeks to engage the greater community in meaningful dialogue on important issues of our day. While informed by a uniquely Jewish sensibility, our films communicate themes and messages with universal appeal to a wide audience drawn from the Monterey area and beyond. Our festival's accompanying programs further engage mind and heart through discussion and social interaction. We hope that our festival will help bridge cultural and religious differences and contribute to solidarity and peace.
