Event Details

The mission of Violins of Hope Birmingham is to share with our entire community the voices of the lovingly restored Violins of Hope the Jewish musicians were forced to play amidst the atrocities of the Holocaust, and to send the message - NEVER AGAIN. 

 A community-wide alliance of the Birmingham Jewish Federation, The Birmingham Holocaust Education Center, the UAB Institute for Human Rights, the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham, and ABC 33/40, along with corporate donors and generous individuals, have formed an unprecedented collaboration bringing our community an unforgettable educational, cultural and personal experience. Centered on instruments that survived the Holocaust, Violins of Hope provides an incomparable opportunity for learning and reflection on one of the most horrific periods in human history. 

 The centerpiece of the Birmingham project will be the Violins of Hope Concert at the Alys Stephens Center on April 14, 2018, featuring the Alabama Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Music Director, Carlos Izcaray.
