The Champion of Auschwitz(15) at Number 8.
This compelling drama tells the little-known story of the pre-war boxing champ Tadeusz ‘Teddy’ Pietrzykowski, who in 1940 was transported to the newly created Auschwitz concentration camp. Forced by camp officers to fight in the ring for his and other prisoners’ lives ‘Teddy’ fought over 40 victorious duels during his three-year imprisonment in the camp, becoming a symbol of hope for victory over Nazi terror.
“… a story about an extraordinary man who, thanks to his skills, not only fought for his life in the place of extermination, but also gave others hope that their tormentors were not invincible.” Maciej Barczewski, Director.
Directed by Maciej Barczewski.
