This 99-Year-Old Holocaust Survivor Calls Himself the Happiest Man on Earth
As a Jewish boy in Germany at the outbreak of WWII, Eddie Jaku was beaten, imprisoned in multiple concentration camps (including Auschwitz), and learned his family was murdered by Nazis. “I lost my freedom, my dignity, and my faith in humanity,” Eddie says in this profoundly moving TEDx talk. After the war, he got married, and when his first son was born, he felt his heart heal. From that day, Eddie made a vow to teach and share happiness with everyone he meets.
