“Kort hid in a tool shed as camp officials massacred 550 prisoners. After 10 hours in hiding, Kort escaped into a nearby forest, where he lived off of berries and roots for three weeks. He eventually joined the Polish underground, made it to the Russian front, and fought with the Polish army.”
Does his story amaze you? But wait, there’s more. At one point:
“he found a bag in a forest clearing. The sack’s contents: sausages, a bathing suit, a shaving kit and a loaded gun.“
His story goes from Tarzan eating roots and berries, to James Bond.
When he got back home he became the Founder, president and chairman of the Los Angeles-based Imperial Toy Corp, which has become known for it’s splendid ‘bubble-blowing kits and make-up kits for girls’.
Fred also spent time testifying against the Germans at Nuremberg and similar show trial tribunals.
