    Return When 13-year-old Fred Sondermann escaped from Nazi Germany in 1939, on the eve of World War II, he never imagined he would return. His homeland held only horrific and traumatizing memories of discrimination, persecution and death. However, an opportunity in 1969 to spend a sabbatical in Germany represented a chance for Dr. Sondermann to make sense of, and peace with, his experiences. This documentary recounts Sondermann's remarkable journey to understanding, as he begins to appreciate the complexities and multiple realities of the time. Adapted from Sondermann's memoirs, it explores the emotions and the conclusions of an American Jew returning to his German homeland after 30 years. In addition to the late Sondermann's compelling first-person narrative, it also features interviews with his son, his widow and his childhood friend. Contemporary video and photography of Dachau Concentration Camp and Sondermann's hometown of Horn are interchanged with archival images and documents, period news footage and the few surviving family photographs. duration 28:48   STEREO TVPG

    History Detectives [#307] Doc Holliday's Watch/Civil War Female Soldiers/Japanese Internment Camp Artwork * Doc Holliday's Watch - Four years ago, a pawn store clerk in Tulsa, Oklahoma, met a customer with a pawned antique watch, engraved with a potentially historic inscription. Could this watch have been a gift from the fearless frontier lawman Wyatt Earp to the dentist, gambler and gunman "Doc" Holliday, perhaps in gratitude for his help fighting the Clanton outlaw gang at the OK Corral? HD uncovers the surprising facts behind this legendary gunfight and the real relationship between Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday.
    * Civil War Female Soldiers - A Louisiana resident owns a Civil War photograph featuring a fine-boned, slight-figured soldier. The soldier is simply identified as a member of the 2nd Louisiana Infantry... but could it be a woman in disguise? HD learns more about the remarkable contributions of women during the Civil War and determines if this could indeed be the only known photo of a Confederate woman soldier.
    * Japanese Internment Camp Artwork - In a San Francisco historical archive, an intern recently discovered a set of 10 postcard-size watercolors of what appears to be a prison camp. Piecing them together, the intern was surprised to find they were painted on the back of a Japanese-American internment notice from 1942. What is the story behind these paintings? Who was the artist? And what was his or her fate? HD travels to the West Coast to solve the puzzle, uncovering the dramatic story of one of the 120,000 Americans citizens who spent years behind barbed wire, guilty only of being of Japanese descent.
