Violins of Hope Brings Exhibition to Knoxville

Last Friday, at the University of Tennessee’s Downtown Gallery in Knoxville, a special exhibition called Violins of Hope: Strings of the Holocaust opened. The show includes nearly 40 violins salvaged from the concentration camps and ghettos of World War II, where they were used by captives to offer some humanity and entertainment in spite of the barbaric circumstances. The violins have been saved and restored by a few committed folks; at the end of January, the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra will even play these violins during two special performances at the Tennessee Theatre. If you’re in the city during January, we recommend a stop at this moving installation.
