About Zishe Breitbart


Zishe (Siegmund) Breitbart (February 22, 1883–October 12, 1925) was a Polish-born circus performer, vaudeville strongman and Jewish folklore hero. He was known as the \"Strongest Man in the World\" and \"The Ironking\" during the 1920s, and was born into an Orthodox Jewish family of blacksmiths in Łódź. He traveled and performed extensively in Europe and America. He gained American citizenship in 1923. Breitbart became a legend and took on the proportions of a national hero in Europe and America, only to die tragically and ironically at the age of 42. In a demonstration in which he drove a spike through five one-inch thick oak boards resting on one of his knees using only his bare hands, his knee was accidentally pierced. The spike was rusty and caused an infection, which led to fatal blood poisoning. Both legs were amputated in an effort to stem the infection, but they failed.
