Muller, can't you get me out? You're a friend of Inga's family. You *know* how much she's suffering. If you hate me because I'm a Jew, at least have pity on her.
Who hates you? And how can you be so certain she's suffering?
What do you mean?
Has she said something to you?

Reinhart Heydrich is known by historians as having been a uniquely dangerous member of the Hitler's inner circle, as the man was not only far more intelligent than the usual Nazi thug, but completely amoral as well. Both sides are superbly bought out by David Warner as his Heydrich reveals his philosophy to Michael Moriarty's Captain Dorf - it was the high point of the miniseries. It marked Warner for me as a thinking man's villain.
