For many generations the violin was a prominent instrument in Jewish life. The sounds of the violin could be heard in Jewish communities in the Diaspora on holidays and at celebrations and during times of crisis and misery, arousing feelings of joy and sorrow, longing and hope.

The exhibit tells the story of five youngsters, who were wonderful musicians and for whom the sound of the strings was a source of physical and spiritual existence at times of crisis and destruction.
