If little green men from Mars landed tomorrow,

you would all become green.

Kid, you are very young.

But your father was a Nazi.

What? No. He hated the Nazis.

Yeah, right. After 45 everybody is

suddenly in the resistance against Hitler.

And you are here by which authority?

State prosecutor's office, Frankfurt.

Good morning.

Good morning.

Therefore, I request three years

of imprisonment.

Good job, Haller.

Mr. attorney general, If there is nothing more,

I would like to finish the meeting.

Mr. chief prosecutor.

Yes, Mr. Radmann?

-That teacher, Schulz...

- What Schulz?

The case of Mr. Gnielka.

I beg your pardon?

I have researched t.

Schulz was in the Waffen-SS.

He consealed it when

was hired in 1947.

He shouldn't be a teacher.

Here is my report.

Let me see.

Yes, that's interesting.

You know what? I will send it to

the Ministry of Education.

Gentlemen, next Wednesday,

at the same time.

Your mother has left this for you.

- What? When?

-A moment ago.

She's been waiting for you, but your father

was honking outside, so impatient.

Like all men!

He is not my father.

My father is missing since 45.

Eastern front.

I'm sorry.

- He really said that?

- Word of honor.

Mr. Gnielka.

- Do you remember me?

- I know who you are.

I have taken care of Schulz.

The ministry is suspending him.


What is he accused of?

You believe he killed someone?

He was at Auschwitz.

Don't you know what that means?

Wasn't that a protective custody camp?

Trust me, they did not protect anyone there.

I can't believe it!

Watch this.

Have you ever heard of Auschwitz?


-That's what I'm talking about.

- Does Auschwitz mean anything to you?

- No, and I have work.

- How old are you?

- 20.

-And you've never heard of Auschwitz, right?
