The story of Noah Klieger (1926, Strasbourg, France) is a story of pain, courage and also a survival experience. The story of someone that, despite being a child, overcame the circumstances and managed to deceive the implacable SS with the intention of giving testimony to the world.
When Belgium fell under the Nazi occupation, 13-year-old Noah helped founding a Zionist youth underground organization that saved 270 Jews. Some years later, after being captured and deported to Auschwitz, he managed to survive thanks to his intelligence and will to live, which lead him, for instance, to deceive Mengele by pretending to be a professional boxer. He suffered torture, cold, famine, illness, forced work and an indescriptible death march.
An unforgettable and unique testimony on the Holocaust and its consequences for the modern world.
