More About the Story

Harry Haft: Survivor of Auschwitz, Challenger of Rocky Marciano

Recording my Dad's memories of his harrowing life started out as a family history project assigned to me as the oldest son. The powerful story of a young Polish Jewish teen imprisoned in five different concentration camps, a young man's escape, and first taste of freedom made possible through sheer wits, fists and violence, to the ultimate story of a man, an illiterate immigrant who became a professional prize fighter facing Rocky Marciano in the ring, while a husband, and difficult father. The family project became my book, HARRY HAFT SURVIVOR OF AUSCHWITZ , CHALLENGER OF ROCKY MARCIANO, an International graphic novel, and now a major Hollywood motion picture.
