Louis Zamperini Runs This Town

Louis Zamperini was born January 26, 1917 in Olean, New York, to Italian immigrants Anthony Zamperini and Louise Dossi. At the age of 2, his family moved Torrance, California where Zamperini spent most of his childhood and teenage years. Often you could find him “running” the streets of Torrance, whether from one of his mischievous endeavors or around the Torrance High School Track. The city of Torrance will forever be a part of the “Unbroken” hero’s history.
