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.

I will fight for the Jesus's bible

Don't you want one?

Oh, yes

Here, have a chocolate,

this you can't resist!

You skiped!

Absolutely not! You did!

You're too slow...

but now I jumped over!

What? is he on time?

On time for a few minutes

People can speak to the priest of what they want

because they have principals,

you should not under estimate him

He is relied by the Vatican,

there must be some reason. - Yes

He is the Cardinal's famous person,

his family is also very well known

The whole Vatican is a big house, and

Luxembourg is just a brick of a damaged house

if we take off the brick,

the walls will fall

But what if Kremer escape?

- He won't!

He is very clear, what would

this bring to his brothers

but will he cooperate with us? - Province

Political Party Leader, there is rumor saying...

the Pope will be soon deciding

the action to the Jewish problem

We should be prepared. The Pope will still come

to congratulate our Leader's birthday every year

and call him the

"Most respectable Mr. Hitler"

Right now he criticize the allize force

to the German's attack

I have no complain to the Vatican,

the Holy See at least for now...

I hope to get the report

everyday goodbye!

Mr. Charging Leader

You're a powerful person

but if your plan failed, even if you

have good relationships with

the top couldn't help you at all

We need a lot of talented people

for the East Prison camp

Oh, I remembered.

You were there before.

If this is a vacation, are you

going back to the Dachau's camp?

People have to stay

at their position...

stay where he belongs to,

and believe in God.

What's this mean?

I can't...

Nazi treats the priest better

than the others

usually, 4 people have

only one bread

but we can have one

for each 3 priests
