Bronislaw Huberman never learned what happened to his Stradivarius violin that was stolen during his concert at Carnegie Hall in New York City in 1936. It disappeared for 50 years. The esteemed violinist Joshua Bell describes the story and today is honored to be the owner of the very violin that Huberman once performed on.
