Hello Martin from Prague,

THANKS SO MUCH for your response. Rudolf Sofron was your granduncle? I am happy to finally get some info about the violin. Was he in Prague in 1944?

Please tell me as much about him as you know (and have time for)

The violin sounds VERY GOOD. I got interested in finding out about its maker because it sounds so great. It surprises me that Rudolf is a little known maker because of the sound. It was shipped to a member of our family from Prague.

Do you know if there would be some reason for him to make two violins in 1944 that are known today and being used or sold today while the others he made don't seem to be around? Did he make lots of others?

In 1944, Germany had control over what is the Czech Republic today. Do you think the violins were somehow taken out of Prague by Nazis or someone else?

Anyway, thanks Martin and I hope to hear from you.

Sincerely, Deb
