Amqui Station

Tennessee Crossroads stops in the suburban community of Madison, TN, just above Nashville. A place where, like most towns in Tennessee, you can’t catch a train anymore.

Violins of Hope on NPT's Tennessee Crossroads

Violins of Hope

Nashville, TN

In the city of Nashville, there is no shortage of well-crafted instruments. Ask any musician and they’ll tell you that a handcrafted instrument has its own personality and individual voice. In this story you’ll see a collection of violins who all share a sad history. Violins that were played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. Tennessee Crossroads' Jessica Turk takes us on a tour of the Violins of Hope exhibit and shows us how instruments speak for those that no longer can and inspire the rest of us to say never again.
