Salamo Aruch is a Greek Jew. He worked as a port loader. Passionate about boxing. In 1941, at the age of 17 years, he became the champion of the Balkans in the first middle weight. In 1943, he and his parents, three younger sisters and brother, along with other Jews from Thessaloniki, were sent to Auschwitz concentration camp (out of 47,000 Greek Jews arrested only 2,000 would survive). His mother and sisters were immediately destroyed in the gas chambers.

For the sake of his amusement, one of the officers gathered among the newly arrived prisoners those who could participate in boxing fights, and Aruch became one of them. His choice was simple and terrible: if he won, he would get a loaf of bread and be able to sustain his life and the life of his family for a few more days, and if he lost, he would be killed in a gas chamber. As a boxer, he was not sent to physical work - he was a bookkeeper. After some time, his weakened father died in the gas chamber. His brother refused to pull out gold teeth from the dead and was shot.

During the fights camp guards staged a tote.Salamo won over 200 fights. All losers were killed in gas chambers. Knowing this, the boxers fought hard. In 1989, the film “The Triumph of the Spirit” was filmed.
