Film, Box for Life

Story of Noah Klieger, who 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 was sent to Auschwitz, where he claimed himself a boxer, which saved his life. He was the last remnant of the boxing team of Auschwitz, the oldest active journalist in the world, and a crew member of the ship "Exodus - 1947". He is likened as the Jewish Forrest Gump. 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.
