A story of two brothers separated during the holocaust who thought each other dead. Morris escaped to Russia where he did boot making trade for 6 years. Adam hid in Germany until he was captured by the Nazis and sent to a concentration camp. He was imprisoned there until 1945 when he was liberated by the Americans. Both brothers arrived in Australia within two years of each other, reconnected by chance on another continent after almost a decade of separation. They opened a boot shop together and have been inseparable ever since. The Perkal brothers have been making boots together for 62 years. They have made boots for Queen Elizabeth II, The Bee Gees, Sammy Davis Jr, Kerry Packer and The Beatles.
