Synopsis

In this no ordinary concert, the great violinists Shlomo Mintz and Cihat Askin appear with the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, playing instruments that belonged to Holocaust victims.

Often severely damaged, the violins were found in liberated death camps and deserted ghettos after the Second World War. Master violin-maker Amnon Weinstein has devoted his life restoring them. Now, almost 70 years later, they sing again in the hands of distinguished musicians.

A one of a kind concert with instruments reunited for the first time.
