Eighty Years Ago On Two Sides Of The Atlantic

Hank Greenberg was a hero to Jews and other minorities.

Hank Greenberg was a hero to Jews and other minorities.

As American Jewish newspapers related information about the plight of Jews in Germany, Jewish baseball fans found escapism in Greenberg, who posted a .301 batting average and with 12 home runs in only 117 of the team’s 154 games showed he had the makings of a star.

For Jews under Hitler’s domain, though, the nightmare was just beginning.

About the Author: Author, columnist, and public speaker Irwin Cohen headed a national baseball publication for five years and worked for a major league team, becoming the first Orthodox Jew to earn a World Series ring. His column appears the second week of each month. He can be reached in his suburban Detroit area dugout at irdav@sbcglobal.net.
