The real life person Paul Kayser is named "Leo Kayser" in this movie because of his Jewish religion. The real Kayser was a Christian but converted to Judaism, which created him many antisemitic reactions. For this movie his name was changed to Leo, because according to the Nazis "Leo" sounds more Jewish than "Paul". His religion was used to make him the antagonist in this movie. See more
The Reichstag is shown as a group of people who can talk whenever they want without giving a real chance to speak and openly insult the speaker, Carl Peters in this case, which is not how it is in real life (this was done because this movie supposed to set an antidemocratic tone). See more
Frau Peters, mother
You are my Carlemann. Even if they scream and stomp, come home and don't be sad.
Dr. Carl Peters
I'm not sad, mother. Let the roisters scream and stomp as much as they want. They can't stomp upon my idea, my colonies. Mother, when the two of us are no more and those in there are no more even longer, there still will be a mountain in Africa. 6000m high. Mount Kilimanjaro. As an eternal monument for a German Africa.
