A Journey on My Own synopsis
The film "A Journey About Myself" tells the story of Eric Feller, born in America, but grew up in Hitler Germany, where he saw the persecution of Jewish neighbors and suffered from the bombing of cities. After being expelled from the Nazi Academy, he crossed the battle lines to get to his home.
On Passover 1945, he faced American forces, became their interpreter, and witnessed heavy fighting. He joined the British occupation forces and performed a variety of jobs to obtain food as compensation.
He was sought for his Americanidentity when he was returned to America at the age of 15, but ideas about independence were frustrated when he was required to attend the public school. Although he filled post-school jobs, his primary support was through a welfare agency in New York City.
In 1950, Feller was appointed to the army, he was assigned at the age of nineteen, and continued to serve in Korea, where he was seriously injured and twice decorated for valor.
