Box For Life

Noah Klieger is the last living survivor of the boxing team of Auschwitz and the oldest still active journalist in the world. In between, he saw from close up and survived many of the defining events of the 20th century, and some of the events he may have even steered a bit. 91-year old Klieger is a Jewish Forrest Gump.
