The happiest man on Earth: 100-year-old holocaust survivor, Eddie Jaku shares his story

We live in a rapidly changing world — a world where uncertainty or unexpected events are becoming more frequent. What worked yesterday isn’t necessarily going to be enough to see us into the future. Neither is trying to remain robust — attempting to avoid unexpected events.

Uncertainty challenges us to become aware of how we can use unplanned circumstances events to transform ourselves.

Coraggio is delighted to announce Eddie Jaku as our keynote speaker at the Sydney Board Day on Thursday 18 February.

The key takeaways from Eddie Jaku’s speaker session will include:

  • Self-proclaimed as ‘the happiest man on earth’, Eddie witnessed death every day throughout WWII and because he managed to survive, made a vow to himself to smile every day
  • Life lessons such as: hug your mother, tell her how much you love her, shared sorrow is half sorrow, shared pleasure is double pleasure and love is the best medicine.

We are opening this complimentary lunchtime inspirational session to guests and invite you to attend. Seats are limited.

About Eddie Jaku

The happiest man on Earth

Holocaust survivor Eddie Jaku never expected to live to 100 let alone become a first-time author just months after reaching that milestone.

He was deported to Buchenwald in late November 1938 and jailed in camps in Belgium and France between 1939 and 1941. He escaped several times, once joining his family in Belgium, where they had fled and lived in an attic, hidden from the world much like Anne Frank’s family. He now describes that time in close confines with his parents, sister, aunts and another Jewish family as one of the happiest times of his life. “Because we were all together.”
