Life can be beautiful if you make it beautiful. It is up to you.
See Eddie on the Project from Sunday 02 Aug 2020. As Lisa Wilkinson said, "This is certainly a book for our times." - https://twitter.com/theprojecttv/status/1289859056786579460
Eddie Jaku always considered himself a German first, a Jew second. He was proud of his country. But all of that changed in November 1938, when he was beaten, arrested and taken to a concentration camp.
Over the next seven years, Eddie faced unimaginable horrors every day, first in Buchenwald, then in Auschwitz, then on a Nazi death march. He lost family, friends, his country.
Because he survived, Eddie made the vow to smile every day. He pays tribute to those who were lost by telling his story, sharing his wisdom and living his best possible life. He now believes he is the 'happiest man on earth'.
Published as Eddie turns 100, this is a powerful, heartbreaking and ultimately hopeful memoir of how happiness can be found even in the darkest of times.
You may have seen the piece on Eddie on The Project to celebrate Eddie's 100th birthday. It was fantastic. Here is the link to The Project's segment on Twitter. Enjoy!
