    Zishe Breitbart

    Jew Score:

    O3

    K4
    February 22, 1893 – October 12, 1925

    Isn't it great when one discovers an aptitude for something at a young age?

    Take Siegmund "Zishe" Breitbart. Born into a family of blacksmiths, he had one path in life: to be a blacksmith. And yet, when he was three, he was pointed to a different vocation. A heavy iron bar fell on Zishe, and he was able to lift it. A career was born: Zishe was to be a strongman.

    And a strongman he became. Not just any strongman, but the "Strongest Man in the World"! Zishe performed to sold out crowds in Europe and North America. Many of his stunts drew on his family's trade: for instance, he bent iron bars into the shape of flowers.

    It didn't end too well for Zishe. When he was performing a routine-for-him stunt of driving an iron spike into boards with his hand, the spike went through his legs. Infection spread, and Zishe couldn't recover. He died soon after.

    Perhaps, it's not always great when one discovers an aptitude for something at a young age...

    Verdict: Jew.
