About this movie

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 across Russia and the Pacific to be reunited with their parents as refugees in America. Focused on building his lighting business rather than dwelling on the past, decades went by before Herb told his wife and children about his childhood, resulting in one last journey back to Sweden to attempt to reunite with the remaining family members who had taken him in 60 years earlier.

A fabulous heart warming story and documentary of a remarkable man who made a difference to so many people throughout his life. He touched so many lives with his kindness and beautiful to see and hear his story of struggles and successes. An inspiration to all that knew him. He will never be forgotten.
