In the 1930s Hitler began firing Jewish musicians. Overcoming extraordinary obstacles, the world famous violinist Bronislaw Huberman moved Europe's great musicians to Palestine and formed a symphony that would become the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. With allies including Arturo Toscanini and Albert Einstein, Huberman saved close to 1,000 Jews, along with Europe's musical heritage.
