In the first segment, Norah O’Donnell meets with Pope Francis at his residence in Vatican City for a historic interview. The 87-year-old Argentinian-born pope, the first to take the name Francis and the first from the Americas, is known for his dedication to the marginalized and his unconventional approach to his role. O’Donnell’s wide-ranging interview covers topics such as the Pope’s views on international conflicts and migration crises, the Catholic Church’s sexual abuse scandals, his commitment to inclusiveness, and his thoughts on surrogate parenthood.

Concluding the season finale is a story about a photo album that arrived at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in 2007. The album, filled with photos of Nazis socializing, was discovered to be the personal scrapbook of a high-ranking Nazi officer who helped run the daily operations of Auschwitz. Correspondent Anderson Cooper investigates the album’s origins and speaks with acclaimed theater director Moises Kaufman, who turned the story into an Off-Broadway play, “Here There Are Blueberries.”
