This is the story of Belgian-born Noah Klieger, who smuggled Jewish children from Belgium to Switzerland when he was just a boy and who reluctantly became a fighter at the age of 16 in order to survive. He was captured by the Germans and sent to the Auschwitz death camp, where he boxed for his life and survived.

On his return to Belgium after the Second World War Noah volunteered to help the “Hagana” organization to smuggle Jews by illegal immigration to Israel, eventually joining them aboard the renowned ship “Exodus – 1947”. Today Noah is 89 years old; a highly reputable journalist for one of Israel’s daily papers.

This moving and engaging documentary chronicles Noah’s incredible life journey, and is based on his book ‘A Dozen Rolls for Breakfast’.

60 minutes - Hebrew and French, with English subtitles
