Synopsis: German occupied Hungary, 1944. Hitler’s “Final Solution to the Jewish Question” is in full effect. Within three months, 400,000 Jews are forced into cattle cars and transported to the gas chambers. Otto Teibeth, an SS Officer, is determined to stop one of these trains.
Inspired by true events, So Soon Forgotten is a story about human decency and the willingness to put oneself at risk for the sake of others. It recounts how against all odds, one man can make a difference, and be a guiding light in the darkest of times.
