Over the course of the 1930s, Polish violin prodigy Bronislaw Huberman─conscious of Hitler's rising influence─facilitated flight to Palestine for Jewish musicians from every corner of Europe. The story of how his efforts formed the precursor of the Israel Philharmonic─and saved nearly a thousand lives─is movingly chronicled here. 85 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; interview; bonus shorts.
