Event Details

Noah Klieger was a French Jewish teenager during WWII. He lay on the beach of Dunkirk when hundreds of thousands of British soldiers were evacuated to Britain. He smuggled Jewish children from Belgium to Switzerland. He was captured by the Germans and sent to the Auschwitz death camp. When he arrived there, he claimed himself as a boxer which saved his life. He was the last remnant of the boxing team of Auschwitz death camp, the oldest active journalist in the world, and a crew member of the ship “Exodus – 1947.” In the film, Noah returns for the first time to the places that marked his life. Noah Klieger is an example of courage, optimism, and resilience.
