Sim Kessel, a young Jewish boxer, joined the French Resistance early in World War II, only to be captured by the Nazis and placed in a sucession of concentration camps and death camps, most infamously Auschwitz. On at least two occasions, he managed to cheat death only with the aid of fellow boxers in the ranks of the camp guards.
A Jewish member of the French Resistance, Sim Kessel lived for almost three years in Nazi captivity. The bulk of his time was at the Auschwitz concentration camp, where he survived torture, starvation, and even his own public execution through extraordinary luck. His remarkable and terrifying story shows in knowing and intimate detail how guards and kapos under the Nazi system degenerated into conscienceless killers, and how the desperate scramble to survive dehumanized Kessel's fellow prisoners.

The incredible story of Sim Kessel a French Jew that fought in the resistance and was arrested by the Nazi's in July 1942. Sim was in his early 20's and a bit young and foolish. After nearly being caught by the Nazi's with a suitcase full of guns, he leaves the guns and is rescued by a French railroad worker. Going back to the same place he is almost arrested again.
