The Ninth Day

Along this period, the SS Gestapo lieutenant Gebhardt tries to persuade Henri, who was born in silver-spoon and member of an influent Luxembourgian family, to convince the local bishop to give-up resisting to the Germans and write a letter to the Vatican in the name of the Catholic Church of Luxemburg convincing the Pope to support Hitler and the Nazi regime. The ambivalent Henri questions himself and the bishop what he shall do.

and she speaks a lot for you...

Yes, Please put the call through

to prison camp commander Mr. Dachau

Dear Mother, I'm here,

and getting used here

To this naughty camp life

I can only answer: Yes

and will soon be a pig of the prison camp,

can't look back, can't have sympathy to others

can only dump into it,

living under darkness silently

This is the last letter for you in the

prison camp - what do you mean?

Why men become the pig

of this prison camp?

Long live, Hitler...

Yes, thank you.

This thing is about

the prison 25639.

No, he has arrived but very sad,

there is a big mistake

Mr. Kremer is not freed,

he just got the vacation

yes, 9 days precisely

and only one rule:

if Mr. Kremer tries to escape

all the prisoned priest in Luxembourg

will be executed death without exception

Long live! Hitler!

Very sorry, this is

the order from the boss

besides, I do not totally agree

to their decision

I think you should be thankful that

I give you this vacation.

I think, I should give you this chance

for you to say goodbye

with your monther

please sit

Because your action opposed German

you're arrested at the French boundary

Please smoke! You had been

working for French government

joined the "French Luxembourg Mission"

which is against the third Empire...

and try to destory the German construction

in Luxembourg isn't it?

Mr. Kremer

You're a very good speaker

this is seen from your

anti-racism speech

Of course you have your reason!

Jesus is also Jewish

But the Jewish keep

depressing themselves

If allowable, I'll start from the story

long time ago, for all these we have

to thank for the Jesus Christ

Because of him,

we know what we have to be aware of

To us,

we have to be aware of Jewish

Even if only myself to defend the Jewish,
