That is Bertil Hedin,

the postmaster there, ja?

And by killing this old mailman I will be

fulfilling the destiny of the Aryan race?

You wish to be relieved of

this assignment, Captain Mundt?

No, sir.

Then do not question your orders.

Simply obey them.

Yes, Herr Doktor.

I apologise.

Further questions?

The men's families

are not to be involved.

And in the case of, say, younger wives...

...who might be open to

romantic overtures... accomplices,...

...I repeat,

the families are not to be involved.

You will live in a manner befitting

salesmen for large German firms.

And you will have enough money

for any equipment you might need.

It is vital that you check in

with headquarters on the first, er...

Find it!

Find it!


All right, Lieberman! Listen to this! killing this old mailman I will be

fulfilling the destiny of the Aryan race?

Operator, any word on my call yet?



I thought I told you to leave!

Well, I didn't, Mr Lieberman.

But I think you're gonna be glad I didn't.

Doktor Josef Mengele was here tonight.

You call me at 3 o'clock in the morning... tell me Doktor Josef Mengele

is in Paraguay? I know that, Mr Kohler!

So does my sister,

so does my landlord, and my tailor!

And now you know it, too!

My congratulations!

He came to a meeting at Gunther's house

tonight, and the others were there, too.

Mengele's sending them out to kill 94

What are you talking about?

Two and a half years?

I can hear you, Mr Kohler.

I just can't follow what you're saying.

Goddamn it, you don't have to believe me!

I've got it all on tape!

All over. Europe, Canada,

the United States.

Mostly civil servants.

Okay. I'm running it down now.

It'll only take a second.

Take your time.

Old men don't go back to sleep
