At the age of 3, Zishe was lifting a nine-pound hammer in his father's blacksmith shop. By the time he was eleven, there was not a bar he couldn't bend or a chain he could not snap. Zishe, a poor Polish Jew, became the featured Strongman of circuses throughout the world. Based on the true story of Zishe of Lodz.
