George Sternfeld’s unique personal journey is characterised by struggle and resolve. His story of escape, survival and migration is a backdrop for the turbulent times into which he was born. His story encompasses his family’s survival of the Holocaust in icy Siberia, a return to post-war, still antisemitic, Communist Poland, and eventual migration to the safe haven of Australia.
Through the trials and tribulations of a quest for new beginnings and normality Chocolate to Anzac Biscuits is a testament to the determination and spirit of man to rise above impossible circumstances and remain human at all costs. With warmth, humour and at times profound sadness George Sternfeld gets to the heart of the essential truth to which his experiences have led him – that memories honour life and love is the antidote that provides healing.
