Frank Lowy arrived in Australia in 1952 aged 21, haunted by the loss of his father in the Holocaust and eager to reunite with the rest of his family. We meet him almost 70 years later, on the eve of the sale of his billion-dollar shopping mall empire Westfield. In this documentary, Lowy speaks about his survival instinct and drive to succeed, and, in recent years, caring for his wife, who has Alzheimer’s. It is an incredible story that encapsulates both the destruction and rebuilding of Jewish life in the 20th century.
