Praise

“I hate to think what the cultural situation in Israel would be today without the tremendous effort of this great human being who was Bronislaw Huberman.”—Zubin Mehta, Music Director, The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra  

Praise for Josh Aronson’s documentary Orchestra of Exiles


“The remarkable story of the Holocaust-era formation of the Palestine Symphony Orchestra by famed, Polish-born violinist Bronislaw Huberman is engrossingly recounted.”—Los Angeles Times

“It was dangerous to be a good person in central Europe when Hitler was darkening the skies. Orchestra of Exiles salutes one of the people who dared to take that course, Polish violin virtuoso Bronislaw Huberman. In doing so, [it] reminds us that just as we must never forget the darkness, we also must never forget those who refused to let all the light go out.”—New York Daily News

Orchestra of Exiles will interest anyone who’s concerned with European Jewry or classical music in the first half of the 20th century.”—NPR

“Richly researched…Orchestra of Exiles aspires to a level of primary research that other historical documentaries could take a page from.”—The New York Times
