What hidden secrets can a photograph reveal?
An album of never before seen World War II-era photographs arrives at the desk of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum archivist Rebecca Erbelding. As Rebecca and her team of historians begin to unravel the shocking story behind the images, the album soon makes headlines around the world. In Germany, a businessman sees the album online and recognizes his own grandfather in the photos. He begins a journey of discovery that will take him into the lives of other Nazi descendants – in a reckoning of his family’s past and his country’s history. Here There Are Blueberries tells the story of these photographs – what they reveal about the Holocaust and our own humanity. Descripción en Español

Un álbum de fotografías nunca visto de la era de la Segunda Guerra Mundial llega al escritorio de Rebecca Erbelding, archivista del Museo Conmemorativo del Holocausto de los Estados Unidos. Mientras Rebecca y su grupo de historiadores comienzan a desentrañar la impactante historia detrás de las imágenes, el álbum pronto ocupa los titulares de todo el mundo. En Alemania, un hombre de negocios ve el álbum en línea y reconoce a su propio abuelo en las fotos. Comienza un viaje de descubrimiento que lo llevara a la vida de otros descendientes nazis, en un recuento del pasado de su familia y la historia de su país. “Here There Are Blueberries” cuenta la historia de estas fotografías y lo que revelan sobre el Holocausto y nuestra propia humanidad.
