The Holocaust had silenced them...until an extraordinary violin-maker brought their voices back to life, and to the world.
The Braid (formerly Jewish Women's Theatre) and the Los Angeles Jewish Chamber Players present the first drama to tell the stories of a famed collection of stringed instruments that survived the Holocaust, and the Israeli family of violin makers whose lives were utterly changed by them. Virtuoso violinist Niv Ashkenazi will play the only violin from the Violins of Hope collection currently in the US.

Passionate, wise and wonderfully rich, this remarkable debut, spanning generations and continents, will pull you into its vivid, dramatic world from the very first page."
- CHRISTINA SCHWARTZ
author of Drowning Ruth and The Edge of the Earth
"A Polish American Jewish family's search for roots provides the gripping drama in this first novel... Neither reverential nor simplistic, this is a stirring story of secrets and discovery and, sometimes, mystical connection, especially for those who wish they had asked about family history before it was too late."
