Bronislaw Huberman was described to documentary filmmaker Josh Aronson "as a cross between Isaac Stern, Joshua Bell and Michael Jackson," making it a surprise to Aronson that most people had never heard of the great violinist. Aronson, Izhak Perlman and others speak about about Huberman's great musical gift and the political conviction that led him to save Jewish musicians from the Holocaust.
