Hymie Zawatzky understands what it means to be an immigrant - to leave one's homeland and embark on a journey to an unknown destination. He and his wife arrived in Australia from South Africa in 1979 and settled in Melbourne. His parents emigrated from Europe in the 1920s. As a qualified and experienced chartered accountant (FCPA) he was able to find his first job and establish himself in Australia. Later he moved on to start his own consulting company specialising in the retail and property industry. The process of immigration and assisting new migrants is one of his interests. This led him to serve on the steering committee of the Ethnic Council of Victoria and to establish a new ethnic radio station in Victoria. Presently nearly every ethnic group broadcasts on radio. He is the author of Australia the Immigrant's Guide to Retail, Retail Survival in Tough Time and The Retailers Guide to Carbon Tax, all of which are available for review on his web site ww.placeofbooks.com. His practical and theoretical understanding of Australian finance, his own experience in immigrating, plus a great deal of research, has given him an ideal background to writing this book.
