Jenin: Orchestra shut down after playing for Shoah survivors

Palestinian officials in a West Bank refugee camp say they have disbanded a youth orchestra after it played for Holocaust survivors in Israel. Jenin refugee camp official Adnan Hindi says the 13-member Strings of Freedom orchestra should not have played for the survivors, calling the Holocaust "a political issue."

 

Hindi added Sunday that the conductor has also been barred from entering the camp. Conductor Wafa Younis says she was not informed of the ban. The orchestra performed a goodwill concert for elderly

survivors in the Israeli town of Holon Wednesday. (AP)
