Bronislaw Huberman (1882-1947) was a Polish violinist and impresario. He was a child prodigy who first toured at age 11. He later founded the Palestine Philharmonic (now known as the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra), which gave refuge from the Nazis to nearly 1,000 European Jews. He took refuge in Switzerland a year before the Anschluss. In 1938, his career almost ended when he was in an accident where he broke his wrist and two fingers. At the onset of World War II, he was in South Africa and was unable to return to his home until after the war.
