The Starfish

Poster for The Starfish 'The Starfish' is the true story of a German-Jewish boy whose life was forever altered at the age of 10, when his parents sent him and his two older sisters to live with non-Jewish families in Sweden to escape Nazi persecution. After living in Sweden for two years, Herb Gildin and his sisters journeyed all the way across the Pacific to be reunited with their parents as refugees in America. Focused on building his business rather than dwelling on his past, decades went by before Herb told his wife and children about his childhood, resulting in one last journey back to Sweden to reunite with the remaining family members who had taken him in 60 years earlier.
