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. They tell stories about the journeys they've been on and the owners who've played them. 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. 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.
The exhibit runs through May 27th at the Downtown Nashville Library, along with related community events inspired by the exhibit.
