What Will Become Of Us

CTC Documentary

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for What Will Become Of Us at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

“When I think back on that young Jewish boy fleeing the Nazis, I find it hard to believe how I ended up here.” - Sir Frank Lowy

Frank Lowy, founder of shopping centre giant Westfield, started with one Australian store and built it into a global billion dollar enterprise. Now in his late 80s and facing the prospect of a merger that will lead to his retirement, he reflects on his past and events that have molded him into the fighter, philanthropist and survivor he is today. 

Born in Czechoslovakia in 1930, Lowy survived the Holocaust, moved to Australia and built a close family and business empire. Revisiting the sites of his childhood and young adulthood, What Will Become Of Us takes us on an intimate journey of a man who seems to have it all but is keenly aware of the past and challenges of the future for himself and his wife. Lowy’s extraordinary life—from the ghettos of Budapest to living as a refugee in Palestine—is the story of his achievements despite all challenges.
