The Unimaginable Journey of Peter Ertel

Directed by Joseph Cahn

USA 104 minutes

A reluctant German Platoon Leader survives the Eastern Front and the Battle of Normandy, is captured by the U.S. Army and recruited by the State Department to assist in the democratization of Germany, then immigrates to Cleveland where he forges a 25-year career with a small company owned by Orthodox Jews. An extraordinary true story of how an honorable man maintained his humanity in a universe of hatred, destruction and death. Winner of the David Ponce Best of the Fest Award at the 2017 Chagrin Documentary Film Festival.
