This beautiful documentary tells about Bronislaw Huberman, a Polish Jew who defied Nazi Germany through his musical talents. After achieving world-wide fame as a virtuoso violinist, Huberman chose 70 Jewish musicians who had been fired by Nazi authorities and moved them to Palestine to form the Palestine Symphony (the future Israel Philharmonic). â€śOrchestra of Exilesâ€ť is a love-song to music and to human ideals, told through rarely seen historic photographs, film footage, and exquisite musical recordings. 85 minutes. Followed by Q & A with CSUN Jewish Studies faculty.
