[SOLD OUT] On-Site Film Screenings: “Joe’s Violin” & “The Lady in Number 6: Music Saved My Life”

April 23, 2023 | 2:30pm CDT

9603 Woods Drive, Skokie, IL 60077

Join us on-site at the Museum for two short films, presented in partnership with JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival:

Joe’s Violin follows a 91-year-old Polish Holocaust Survivor who donates his violin of 70 years to a local instrument drive, changing the life of a 12-year-old schoolgirl from the nation’s poorest congressional district, and, unexpectedly, his own.

The Lady in Number 6 introduces the story of Alice Herz-Sommer, a German-speaking Jewish pianist from Prague who was, at her death, the world’s oldest Holocaust Survivor. In the film, she discusses the importance of music, laughter, and how to have an optimistic outlook on life.

This program has reached capacity. There are no additional tickets available.
