In the 1930s Hitler began firing Jewish musicians. Overcoming extraordinary obstacles, the world famous violinist Bronislaw Huberman moved Europe's great musicians to Palestine and formed a symphony that would become the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. With allies including Arturo Toscanini and Albert Einstein, Huberman saved close to 1000 Jews, along with Europe's musical heritage. Orchestra of Exiles premieres on PBS on April 14, 2013, at 10 pm.
