Australia’s best-known stamp dealer Max Stern 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 recorded in his 2003 autobiography, ‘My Stamp on Life’, and he regularly talks to school groups at the Elsternwick Holocaust museum.

The 93-year-old says he wanted to ensure, by writing his book, that his story was not lost.

This Q & A was done as part of my Radio Journalism course at RMIT University.
