Max Schmeling was a German boxer who was heavyweight champion of the world between 1930 and 1932. His two fights with Joe Louis in the late 1930s transcended boxing and became worldwide social events because of their national associations.

Despite his supposed associations with nazism, it became known long after the Second World War that Schmeling had risked his own life to save the lives of two Jewish children in 1938.[1] While Schmeling was never a supporter of the Nazi regime in Germany, he cooperated with the government's efforts to play down the increasingly negative international world view of its domestic policies during the 1930s.
