The Happiest Man on Earth: The Beautiful Life of an Auschwitz Survivor

by Eddie Jaku - £14.99  Pan Macmillan (2020)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781529066333 | ISBN 10: 1529066336

Life can be beautiful if you make it beautiful. It is up to you.
 
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 a hundred, The Happiest Man on Earth is a powerful, heartbreaking and ultimately hopeful memoir of how happiness can be found even in the darkest of times.
