HOMMAGE À ALFRED NAKACHE
The guard tossed his dagger into a tank. “Bring this back to me in your teeth, like the Jew dog that you are.”
Alfred jumped into the fetid water. Diving under, Auschwitz disappeared and he remembered the crowd cheering when he set the world record for the 200 meter breastroke.
At night he’d lie in his flea-infested bunk and dream of Annie and Paule. Determination to reunite with his wife and daughter gave him the strength to survive the death march to Buchenwald.
In 1948 Alfred Nakache returned to his passion and went on to become a French national champion.
Alfred Nakache will be inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame as a member of the Class of 2019 during the Honoree Induction ceremony in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, May 18, 2019. For more information about him CLICK HERE
