Life can be beautiful if you make it beautiful. It is up to you.
During the Holocaust, the late survivor 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. Throughout his long life, he paid tribute to those who were lost by telling his story, sharing his wisdom and living his best life. Eddie believed he was 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 cherished this book.
This beautiful collector’s edition includes never-before-seen photographs from Eddie’s life, and previously unpublished material about this wonderful man.
Eddie sadly passed away at the age of 101 in October 2021.
