The Boxer: The True Story of Holocaust Survivor Harry Haft

The Boxer
Vol. : The True Story of Holocaust Survivor Harry Haft
(1 rating)


Separated from his family in Nazi-occupied Poland and plunged into the horror and degradation of the concentration camps, young Hertzko Haft found himself forced into life-or-death boxing matches by his SS captors. His battles took him to the end of the Second World War and – against all the odds – liberation. Chasing a rumour to post-war America, Hertzko became Harry and traded desperation for professional boxing – all to send a message to a long-lost friend. Reinhard Kleist's vivid and expressive storytelling shows us two halves of a divided life, and the common thread running through them both. Contrasting the privations of wartime with the possibilities of a new life across the ocean, The Boxer tells the incredible true story of Haft's struggle against experiences that would shape the rest of his life.
