Who was Max Scmeling

Max Schmeling was the heavyweight champion of the world back in the 1930s. I’m watching a movie about him and Joe Louis right now, and it’s pretty interesting. Apparently Schmeling, despite dining with Hitler and talking at length with other Nazis, had a number of Jewish friends and associates. He even helped secrety save a couple of boys during Krystallnacht. After World War 2 Schmeling fought five times and though he never made the top 10, he made enough money to purchase the Coca-Cola dealership that he still operates. He is known as one of the most generous philanthropists in Germany today.]]>
