Death camp magician

We feel that the easiest way to improve magic today is through the internet, where we can reach magicians of all ages and backgrounds. That is exactly what we’re doing with our new ShareMagic video series where we feature exceptional magicians, telling exceptional stories.

First, Joshua Jay interviews Werner Reich, a magician who learned his first trick as a prisoner at Auschwitz. This inspirational video is the first of many we’ve got planned. Watch the interview here.

This video series is produced in conjunction with our Vanishing Inc. Magic Fund; a 501C3 charity. Find out more about our charitable efforts, and how to donate here. And, if you cannot donate, please consider posting a link to this remarkable story on your social media. That will be helping us achieve our goal of advancing the art of magic.

Thank you so much for sharing this story. And for highlighting this wonderful man. He is an inspiration of humanism.

I hope you will share this video with the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC. I've chaperoned a number of trips there and I think they might could find a place for it.
