Who is this guy?

His name is Maurice Garbarz. “The Fighter” is a novel, a work of fiction, but it is based on the actual story of this man.
I know him because he was my father’s friend.
I know his story because he wrote a book about it: “The Survivor.” His elder son helped him write it. His younger son translated it into English.
Maurice died in 2010. He was 95, or maybe 97, as he didn’t know for sure when he was born.
