Did You Know?

The source play and subsequently also this filmed adaptation were inspired by the kidnapping and war-crimes trial of Adolf Eichmann, the events themselves later becoming the subject of their own movie, The Trial of Adolf Eichmann (1997) (TV).See more »

Also The SS used it's own rank titles, so Dorf would have been known as a Standartenfuhrer instead of an Oberst (Colonel).See more »
