“The Unimaginable Journey of Peter Ertel”: A Documentary Film Screening

March 7 @ 12:30 pm - 2:45 pm

$35 – $40

Join OLLI at FAU for the Florida premiere of the limited-release film, “The Unimaginable Journey of Peter Ertel,” the award-winning documentary about the extraordinary odyssey of an aspiring German violinist who becomes a reluctant soldier in Hitler’s army and defies overwhelming odds to not only survive World War II, but become a U.S. Government agent. Then, after immigrating to America, he begins a 25-year career with a small company owned by Orthodox Jews. Peter Ertel, 95 at the time of filming, tells his own incredible and inspiring life story. This is an unprecedented film narrative of that historic period, which has profound relevance to our current times. A pre-screening introduction and a post-screening Q&A session via Zoom with the film’s Director, Joseph Cahn, will enhance the experience. This special event is not to be missed! view the trailer here: https://www.peterertelfilm.com/press-kit-trailer
