Fredy Hirsch was a proud Jew and openly gay man who defied stereotypes and prejudices of his time. With the rise of Nazism, he fled Germany and became a sports teacher in a Jewish youth club. During the Holocaust, he continued his care for countless children and fought to maintain their human dignity in Ghetto Terezin and Auschwitz. The testimonies of the children that were under Fredy’s care tell the story of a larger-than-life figure, a hero we never knew.
