The Life of Charles Gad Strasser is well captured in the title, From Refugee to OBE. The reader will find not only a passionate personal story of one man’s “climbing of the mountain” but also an important historical rendition from war-torn Europe to the flourishing industries and institutions, which have contributed to our current prosperous world. Charles Strasser fled from his native Czechoslovakia when he was eleven in 1938 just barely in advance of the Nazi war machine. Six years later, he joined the allied armies and participated in the final victory. Before his twenty-fifth birthday, he founded a company that would employ hundred and have an international scope, with ties to Germany, Japan, and many developing countries. While he excelled in business, it was for his many humanitarian services that he was awarded the distinction, Officer of the Order of the British Empire. He received his OBE from Her Majesty, the Queen, at an investiture in Buckingham Palace. The reader is invited to come along with Charles Strasser on his exciting journey from refugee to OBE.
