Shortly after the film's release, Jacques "Jacko" Razona, a Jewish boxer from Salonika, sued the real life Salamo Arouch and the producers for $20,000,000 (US). Razona claimed that they had stolen his story, and that Arouch had grossly exaggerated his exploits. The case was later settled out of court. See more »
In the movie, Salamo Arouch was depicted as having married "Allegra" shortly before being sent to Auschwitz. In reality, Arouch met her for the first time after they had both been liberated from Auschwitz in 1945 and were subsequently married. Furthermore, "Allegra" was a name used by the writers for artistic reasons, his wife's real name was Marta Yechiel. See more »

A superb movie, this film is an excellent accompaniment to Schlinder's List, Europa Europa and Night and Fog as examples of the worst period of the 20th century. I have read many books on the subject, and Triumph is dead on in its portrayal of the camps. Surprisingly, I've read some people weren't happy with Wilhem Defoes performance. I, on the other hand, thought he was great, as was Robert Loggia. I'm surprised this film isn't more well known. It should definitely be shown in schools.
