A mysterious album of never before seen Nazi-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, recognizes his own grandfather in the photos, and begins a journey of discovery that will lead him to 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 perpetrators of the Holocaust, and about our own humanity.
STC and Tectonic have partnered with Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE) to curate a series of post-show conversations around the themes and questions raised in Here there are Blueberries. We invite you to join leading ethicists and scholars to discuss these issues and their relevance for today. All conversations are open to the public and take place directly after the performance.
