Remembering Leo Bretholz With Michael Olesker

March 14, 2014 - Segment 3 - We remember Leo Bretholz, who died last Friday at the age of 93. Coming of age in Nazi-occupied Austria, Bretholz escaped from German imprisonment seven times in seven years, including leaping from a train bound for Auschwitz. Longtime journalist Michael Olesker pays tribute to this inspirational man who dedicated his life to fighting for justice. Olesker co-authored a book with Bretholz about Bretholz's life, Leap into Darkness: Seven Years on the Run in Wartime Europe. Olesker's most recent book is Front Stoops in the Fifties: Baltimore Legends Come of Age.
