The Happiest Man on Earth by Eddie Jaku

I read through this book in almost no time it all, it’s an absolutely capitvating read from a survivor of Auschwitz with an incredible outlook and zest for life that can only be admired. Eddie tells his story simply, with that ongoing confusion over why such atrocities happened, how people could turn on each other so badly. There are no answers, of course, but Eddie seems to have found peace and tells us, who can never imagine what it was like to live through such things, how to find it also. A lovely, if harrowing, book.
