Lunch and Learn

October 18, 2019 — 12:00 pm

Louisville Free Public Library
301 York Street, Louisville, KY 40203

The Violins of Hope are a collection of more than 50 restored instruments played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. These instruments have survived concentration camps, pogroms and many long journeys to tell remarkable stories of injustice, suffering, resilience and survival.

Join us on October 18th at the Main Branch of the Louisville Free Public Library for a presentation and open discussion with Avshi Weinstein.   Mr. Weinstein is the son and partner of Amnon Weinstein, the founder of Violins of Hope.  Join us for  lunch to hear first-hand from Mr. Weinstein about his father’s inspiration in starting the Violins of Hope and the history and importance of these remarkable instruments.  You will also enjoy a performance from one of the valuable violins from the collection.

Lunch will be provided courtesy of the Violins of Hope.  This program is free and open to the public, but space is limited and registration is requested. Call (502) 574-1623 to reserve your spot.
