Violins Of Hope: "Tuning Out Prejudice: Building Bridges that Last"
The Violins of Hope Exhibit relates remarkable stories of string instruments played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. Each surviving instrument has a unique and inspiring story that connects both young and old to the history of the Holocaust in a deeply emotional, personal, and relatable way. Paralleling lessons of the past to present day issues is key to creating a future where diversity, equality, and inclusion are valued.
This one-of-a-kind exhibit will be housed at the Posner Center on Carnegie Mellon University’s campus. It will be open, free to the public*, from October 7-November 21, 2023. Individuals can experience the exhibit on their own or be guided by a trained docent. Group tours will also be available. In addition, time will be set aside for special tours to be given to middle and high school groups throughout Greater Pittsburgh.
