Her husband was born around 1948 in Vámospércs, Hungary. His parents, Andor and Margaret (Baba) Schwartz, were both Holocaust survivors. Andor’s parents, brother and sister, and extended family were murdered during the Holocaust. Baba herself was a survivor of Auschwitz.

He and his parents were smuggled across the border to Germany in 1949 when he was one year old, to migrate to the newly established state of Israel, where he spent most of the next nine years. A visit from Baba’s sister, who had also survived the Holocaust and had made her home in Australia, convinced Andor that there were new opportunities on the other side of the world.

Morry and his family arrived in Melbourne in 1958, the day before Rosh Hashanah. After finishing school at the selective Melbourne High, he studied architecture briefly before deciding he didn’t have the patience for six years of theory. He dropped out to travel, spending time in Indonesia and Cambodia, before returning to get into the film business.

In 1973, with three friends, Schwartz began a company, Outback Press, the start of his publishing empire. But he also launched a concrete pouring company, Aardvark, which evolved into a property development group, called Pan Urban.
