Overview

The Boxer's Story: Fighting For My Life in the Nazi Camps by Nathan Shapow, Bob Harris

Nathan Shapow, a young Latvian, had nothing more on his mind than to enjoy his teenage years and become a champion boxer. But the sound of jackboots marching across Europe and the systematic extermination of the Jews quickly put paid to his dreams. Soon he was to face a different sort of fight. The prize for victory? His life. Escaping certain death with a punch, surviving life on the ropes, Shapow saw his youth disappear in the terror of the Ghettos and the horror of the camps. Cheating almost certain death on a number of occasions, remarkably he survived to forge a new life in what was then British-controlled Palestine. He joined the Underground and quickly became involved in the struggle to create a Jewish state - and found love along the way. Extraordinary and powerful, The Boxer's Story is a true tale that reads like fiction.
