Description

Life can be beautiful if you make it beautiful. It is up to you. During the Holocaust, Eddie Jaku 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 life. He now believes he is the 'happiest man on Earth'. Shortly after his 100th birthday, Eddie published his memoir, The Happiest Man on Earth, wanting to share all he has learned about hope, kindness and friendship. Readers around the world have cherished this book and their new friend Eddie. This beautiful collector's edition includes never-before-seen photographs from Eddie's life, and previously unpublished material about this wonderful man.
