Eddie Jaku (from Abraham Jakubowicz; April 14, 1920 in Leipzig, Germany - October 12, 2021 in Sydney, Australia) was a German-born Australian Holocaust survivor Jew and author who published his memoir The World's Happiest Man at 100 in 2020. Jaku hid during World War II on a few occasions, however, he ended up in concentration camps and went through four camps. After the war, Jaku moved with his wife to Australia, where he was awarded a medal of merit for his services to the Jewish community. He was a popular speaker and volunteered at the Sydney Jewish Museum. He had taken on the mission of life to promote peace and goodwill. Youth and World War II Eddie Jaku was born in Leipzig in April 1920. He was 13 years old when he was expelled from school as a Jew. He was sent to a boarding school where he used the name Walter Schleif. He studied mechanical engineering and graduated as a toolmaker. Jaku returned home on November 9, 1938, but there was no one in the family home. There was a so-called crystal night going on at the time, when Jewish homes, businesses and synagogues were attacked in Germany and Austria. Tens of thousands were sent to concentration camps during the events. Jakuk was also imprisoned and taken to the Buchenwald concentration camp. He was released five months later to work in a tool factory. Jaku's father picked up his son from the concentration camp to work, but they fled to Belgium, where they were arrested as German refugees. Jaku traveled from Belgium to France, where he was arrested and sent to the Gurs internment camp. There he was put on a Auschwitz train seven months later. Jaku managed to steal a hammer, a screwdriver and a wrench before loading it on board. They enabled him to open the floorboards. Jaku and eight others escaped shortly before Strasbourg. He fled to Belgium, where he lived with his parents and sister in hiding in the attic. Jaku and his family were imprisoned in October 1943. They were sent to Auschwitz, where his mother and father were murdered in a gas chamber. Jaku himself was spared because he had been named an “economically invaluable Jew” because of his engineering skills. Auschwitz was emptied in 1945 when Soviet troops began to approach it. Jaku survived the march to a smaller camp, where he was put in charge of production at a local factory. Jaku managed to escape while the new camp was being evacuated again. He hid for two months in a nearby forest and, according to his memoirs, i.e. snails and clams. He became seriously ill after drinking contaminated water, but was rescued by U.S. soldiers in June 1945, when the war was over. Jaku was badly malnourished and had cholera and typhoid. Life after the war Jaku married soon after World War II in Belgium. He had two children with his wife Flore Molho. Michael was born in Europe and Andre in Australia, where they had moved in 1950. There Eddie worked in a Sydney-based workshop and Flore as a seamstress until they moved into the real estate industry. Jaku volunteered at the Sydney Jewish Museum since its founding in 1992. He was known as a good speaker, and he shared his experiences with students, teachers, politicians, and professionals. He dedicated his life to promoting peace and goodwill. In 2013, Jaku received the Australian Order of Australia Medal of Honor for his services to the Jewish community. Among other things, he said that he would do everything he could to make the world a better place for everyone and demanded the same from others.
