The Unimaginable Journey of Peter Ertel (Saturday, June 11th at 2 PM): 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.
