I Missed My Train, a documentary currently in production, focuses on one man’s journey revisiting his experiences as a hidden child during the Holocaust. The film follows retired businessman Ernst Van Gelderen as he recounts key events of his early years during WW II. Along the way his personal memories are juxtaposed against the historical context of those times provided by several renowned European experts. Ernst’s powerful memories from one of the most traumatic time periods in history will leave you questioning the meaning of fate, your definition of family, and how much the world has actually changed.
