that I cannot remember a loyal officer...

...from the early days of the struggle.

And now for the youth.

This is Friedrich Hessen,

son of Wilhelm Hessen.

Welcome, young man.

Wolfgang Kleist.

- I am pleased you are with us.

- Thank you, Herr Doktor.

- And Otto Schwimmer.

- A great pleasure, Herr Schwimmer.

And now to business.

Sit down, gentlemen, please.

The task before you is

the most important operation that...

...the Comrades Organisation

has ever undertaken.

It is the vital link in a programme... which I and your leaders have

devoted many years of enormous effort.

Your success on this project...

...carries with it the hope

and destiny of the Aryan race.

And that is not an exaggeration,

but the literal truth.

It is a holy mission, gentlemen.

You should consider yourselves

highly honoured... have been chosen to perform it.

Now for the details.

In the next two and a half years,

Sixteen of these men

are in West Germany.

Fourteen in Sweden.

Thirteen in England.

Twelve in the United States.

Ten in Norway, nine in Austria.

Eight in Holland

and six each in Denmark and Canada.

A total of 94... assassinations.

All of these men...

...will be 65 years old when their dates

come around. Obviously,...

...a few of them will already

have died of natural causes.

Yes, Farnbach?

Who are these men? Jews?

Not one. They are all family men.

Civil servants, school principals,

men of minor authority.

Are we permitted to hire accomplices?

I would not advise it.

Bear it in mind

that these are 65-year-old men.

Their eyesight is failing, they have

slow reflexes, diminished strength.

I've been through Sweden quite a bit...

...but I've never heard

of this place... Rasbo?

It is a village,...

...about 15 km from Uppsala.
