Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival (GPJFF)
Box for Life | Encore Screening!
January 10, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Experience the unbelievable life of the late great Noah Klieger in BOX FOR LIFE, one of the most talked-about, highest-rated docs from Fall Fest.
In this passionate and affecting documentary, Noah recounts his experiences during the Holocaust — from courageously smuggling Jewish children to safety in Switzerland to surviving Auschwitz with the help of some world champion boxers. Equally impressive are Klieger’s roles in organizing Exodus 1947, fighting in the 1948 Israeli War of Independence, and his coverage of the trials of Nazi criminals after World War II.
