Traces of Arnold is a feature-length documentary film that follows the journey of Shari Unger Klages, Avi Hoffman and the priceless holocaust Album left in a closet by her father, Arnold Unger. The Dachau Album contains memorabilia, hundreds of photographs and, most strikingly, dozens of colored drawings depicting life and death in the Dachau Concentration Camp, where her father had ended years of imprisonment.
Traces of Arnold documents Shari’s search to unravel the mysteries of the Album, the realities of Dachau, and the painful legacy of her father’s youth. Through unparalleled visuals of the Album’s contents, coupled with interviews, archival footage and Shari’s vérité journey, we are brought through a compelling tale of a Jewish boy whose traumatic story links us to the Catholic artist Michal Porulski, an American Lieutenant, Holocaust survivors, concentration camp liberators, a long lost love and The Vatican. Through this journey, the Album offers Traces of Arnold that continue to resonate today, as long as there is intolerance and tyranny in the world.
