The past week may convince Bill Clinton that his most recent predecessors were right: Foreign policy is every President's strong suit. It offers political escape, personal prestige and policy dominance. Before his trip to Europe, the President was on the defensive. The Whitewater affair was stalking him politically. Health-care reform was under attack by some Democrats and all the various interest groups. His nominee for defense secretary turned out not to have paid Social Security for his maid.

The remarkable story of the Holocaust-era formation of the Palestine Symphony Orchestra by famed, Polish-born violinist Bronislaw Huberman is engrossingly recounted in the documentary "Orchestra of Exiles. " Writer-producer-director Josh Aronson (2000's Oscar-nominated "Sound and Fury") tracks Huberman's early life as a child prodigy performing violin concerts across Europe through his adult years - transformed as they were by the rise of Nazi Germany. Stirred by the mounting ravages of anti-Semitism, Huberman, from 1935 to 1939, heroically engineered the emigration of a gifted group of Jewish musicians out of Europe and into then-Palestine.
