The story of a violin stolen from a Jewish native of a Polish city after the rise of Hitler almost doesn't deserve mention. After all, Czestochowa was the scene of one of the worst cases of genocide of World War II -- approximately 45,000 Jews were systematically murdered by the Nazis. But that violin -- a priceless Stradivarius -- was owned by the town's most famous resident, the famed violinist Bronislaw Huberman. Before the rise of national socialism, he was considered one of the most prodigious musicians of all time. Born in 1882, no less than composer Johannes Brahms praised his playing. But as a recent film documents, during the war he was a tireless opponent of the Nazis and saved many Jews by bringing them to Palestine to create an orchestra that would become the Israel Philharmonic. "The Return of the Violin" shines a harsh light on the brutality of the German occupiers and sheds light on just how Joshua Bell -- now the world's most famous concert soloist -- came to own Huberman's Strad.
