Max Stern is highly regarded as Australia’s best-known stamp dealer. The 93-year-old has not let his tragic past as a young Czechoslovakian Jew living under the German occupation ruin his positive outlook on life. His trials and tribulations are accounted for in his 2003 autobiography, ‘My Stamp on Life’. He has also published another book on his career in stamp and coin dealing. A stamp dealer, a Holocaust survivor, and a loving family man, Max’s tragic yet inspiring story is truly remarkable.
