Triumph of the Spirit
This story is based on the real-life experiences of Salamo Arouch, a middleweight boxing champion of the Balkan countries. Captured by the Nazis in 1943, Greek-Jewish Arouch was sent to one of their death camps where he was forced to fight over 200 opponents for the entertainment of the SS Officiers. His survival and the survival of his family and others in his barracks depended upon his ability to keep winning.
