- The Happiest Man on Earth
The Happiest Man on Earth
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 has paid tribute to those who were lost by telling his story, sharing his wisdom and living his best possible life. This is a powerful, heartbreaking and ultimately hopeful memoir of how happiness can be found even in the darkest of times.
