Fifty years later, Paul Drexler begins searching for his father, the man known as Eugen Drexler. His journey takes him from Australia to Slovakia, Germany and other foreign lands that he never thought he would ever return to. His desperate search to unveil the circumstances surrounding his father’s brutal killing in the last days of World War II finally comes to an end, with the most unexpected evidence uncovered.
Sparely written, moving and painfully real, In Search of My Father is a testament to the bond between father and son – a bond that could not be broken by separation, death or the passing of time.
Paul Drexler is currently involved, in an honorary level, with the Sydney Jewish Museum. He is married and lives with his wife, at BONDI, Sydney.
