About this event

Preceded by award-winning short film, EDEK by Malcom Green. Featuring an 86-year-old Holocaust survivor, Janine Webber, collaborating with American rapper, Kapoo, to present her story in a brand new and daring way.

THE CHAMPION OF AUSCHWITZ tells the unknown story of one of the first inmates of camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, prisoner number #77. During his 3-year imprisonment in the camp, Tadeusz "Teddy" Pietrzykowski fought over 40 victorious duels, becoming a symbol of hope for victory over Nazi terror. His on-screen history has been documented in detail based on archival statements of former prisoners of Auschwitz and the memories of the boxer himself.
