I Dare You To Read Holocaust Survivor Martin Greenfield’s Story And Not Burst Into Tears

Every once in a while a book is written that tells a story that you’ll never forget, and leaves you telling all your family and friends about. Martin Greenfeild’s Measure of a Man: From Auschwitz Survivor to Presidents’ Tailor is one of those books.

Every single page of Measure Of A Man is packed with massive amounts of detail. This memoir is like none other. Mr. Greenfiled wastes no time before plunging you deep inside the gut-wrenching, horrifying hell of Nazi concentration camps. You’re right there with him. Martin Greenfield’s gruesome recounting of how he lost his entire family is a misery matched only by the awe-inspiring story of how he literally stitched together a new life of boundless blessings for himself in America.

In full disclosure, I am blessed to call Mr. Greenfiled’s co-author Wynton Hall a dear friend. After reading Measure Of A Man, I looked Wynton in the eyes and asked him how this memoir was different from any other that he has helped write.

“Martin Greenfield’s is by far the hardest and most amazing stories I’ve ever been blessed to tell,” a wide-eyed Wynton said to me.

More than 60 years ago, when Martin Greenfield was 15-years-old, he was kidnapped from his home in Czechoslovakia and taken to the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz. It was there, in Auschwitz, where Martin Greenfield received his first tailoring lesson.

Receiving your first tailoring lesson inside a Nazi concentration camp was hardly the ideal apprenticeship. I would have much preferred to hone my craft on Savile Row or in the mills of Milan. Looking back, though, that moment in the camps marked the beginning of the rest of my life. Strangely enough, two ripped nazi shirts helped this Jew build America’s most famous and successful custom-suit company.

God has a wonderful sense of humor.

Today Martin Greenfield is the owner and operator of  Martin greenfield Clothiers, a Brooklyn-based boutique clothing factory that has tailored suits for presidents and Hollywood stars for more than 50 years.

Mr. Greenfield has been hailed “America’s greatest living tailor” and the “most interesting man in the world.”

Once you start reading Measure Of A Man, you won’t want to put it down. Martin Greenfield will make you laugh. The stories of him being separated from his family–never to see them alive again–will make you cry. And then the stories of Martin Greenfield driving around New York City–mistaking a Yankees ticket line for a bread line–will make you laugh again.

It’s only a matter of time before Mr. Greenfield’s story is seen on the silver screen. Measure Of A Man is a must read for all ages.

As I type, Measure Of A Man is #82 on Barnes and Noble and #173 on Amazon. Mr. Greenfield’s memoir is experiencing a massive groundswell of grassroots support. And it’s truly a testament to a man that is one of this country’s greatest examples of the American Dream.
