Eddie Jaku believes he is the happiest man in the world. Why is this? Because he smiles every day. And he has smiled every day, as he recounts in this astonishing memoir, since he survived the horrors of the concentration camps he was interred in during WWII. Eddie’s phenomenal book, published on his 100th birthday, is a memoir about wisdom, faith and finding the light wherever you go. At the age of 100, this is Eddie Jaku’s first book. He was born in Germany in 1920 and imprisoned in Buchenwald and Auschwitz concentration camps, from which he escaped in 1945. He has been a resident of Sydney since he moved with his family to Australia in 1950, a volunteer at the Sydney Jewish Museum since it first opened its doors in 1992, and a devoted husband to Flore Jaku for 74 years. Together, they have two sons and scores of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Want to chat about what you’re reading with fellow book lovers?
