Holocaust Boxers

The aim for this post is to be a reference point for those who wish to learn more about boxers victimized during the Holocaust. The intention is that this post will expand as new information becomes known.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum defines victims of the Shoah as: "Any persons, Jewish or non-Jewish, who were displaced, persecuted or discriminated against due to the racial, religious, ethnic, social and political policies of the Nazis and their collaborators between 1933 and 1945. In addition to former inmates of concentration camps, ghettos, and prisons, this definition includes, among others, people who were refugees or were in hiding." This broad definition will be used for this post.
