Max Baer & Barney Ross: Jewish Heroes of Boxing. Jeffrey Sussman interview

Max Baer & Barney Ross: Jewish Heroes of Boxing. Jeffrey Sussman interview

In Max Baer and Barney Ross: Jewish Heroes of Boxing, Jeffrey Sussman chronicles the lives of two men whose successful bouts inside the ring served as inspiration for Jewish fans across the country and around the world. Though they came from very different backgrounds—Baer grew up on his family’s ranch in California, while Ross roamed the tough streets of Chicago and was a runner for Al Capone—both would bask in the limelight as boxing champions. Their stories include legendary encounters with such opponents as Jimmy McLarnin (known as the Jew Killer), Max Schmeling (Hitler’s favorite athlete), and Primo Carnera (a sad giant controlled and mistreated by gangsters).

While recounting the exploits of these two men, the author also paints an evocative picture of boxing and the crucial role it played in an era of anti-Semitism. A vivid and engaging look at these two heroes and the difficult era in which they lived, Max Baer and Barney Ross will appeal to boxing fans, sports historians, and anyone interested in Jewish history.

Film Screening – The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg

Join the East Hampton Library and the Hamptons International Film Festival for a screening of the film, The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg, directed by Aviva Kempner.
More than ten years in the making, Aviva Kempner’s lively and nostalgic documentary about baseball legend Hank Greenberg is as timely as a Mark McGwire or Sammy Sosa home run. Almost eighty years ago, as Hitler invaded Europe, Hank  Greenberg, the strapping Detroit Tigers first baseman, challenged Babe Ruth’s record by by hitting 58 home runs in a season.  “I came to feel that if I, as a Jew, hit a home run, I was hitting against Hitler,” wrote Greenberg, who succeeded despite being the focus of intense anti-Semitism throughout his career.  Greenberg was a hero and role model to many, and Kempner’s lovingly crafted and brilliantly researched film combines rare archival footage with interviews of family members and fans including Walter Matthau, Alan Dershowitz, Bob Feller, Ralph Kiner, and Ira Berkow.
