Eddy Hamel was the greatest American soccer player you’ve never heard of. He was the first American to play in any major European league, and for a while, he was the most popular player at one of Europe’s biggest clubs, Ajax of Amsterdam.


He was also a Jew, at a time, and in a place, where his religion was effectively a death sentence. After two decades of brilliant football, first as star player and then as a highly successful coach, beloved by the Jews of Amsterdam, Eddy and his family were swept up in the Nazi’s ‘Final Solution.’ Hamel became one of very few Americans to be sent to Auschwitz.


Now, more than a century later, this is his story.
