He's probably the wealthiest and most wanted Nazi left alive

Janeway:
[In the car with Babe]
All right, things are starting to come together. Keep your head down before you get it blown off. Those two guys I just wasted work for a man named Christian Szell. Does that name mean anything to you?
Babe:
No.
Janeway:
He ran the experimental camp at Auchswitz, where they called him "The White Angel" - "The Weisse Engel" - because he has this incredible head of white hair. He's probably the wealthiest and most wanted Nazi left alive. And he's hiding out somewhere in Uruguay. In 1945, Szell let it be known around Auchswitz that he could provide escape for any Jew who was willing to pay the price. He started out with gold naturally, but very quickly worked his way up to diamonds. Have you heard any of this before?
Babe:
No.
Janeway:
Szell saw the end early. And he snuck his brother into America with his diamonds. They're right here in New York in a safe deposit box. Szell's brother had the key. The only other key was kept by Szell in Uruguay. And now, if he has to come out of hiding to use it, he's gonna expose himself to incredible risk. Well, everything worked out fine until his brother got killed in a head-on collision with an oil truck.
Babe:
[raspy]
Why did you say "naturally" when you said he'd started with gold?
Janeway:
Because he knocked it out of the Jews' teeth before he burned them. Szell was a dentist.
[Janeway's car makes a left turn at another street]

Babe:
He's not coming to America, Mr. Janeway. He's here.
Janeway:
He can't be here. We'd already know it if he was.
Babe:
He's here. That was the dentist that almost killed me. He kept saying, "Is it safe?, is it safe?" over and over.
Janeway:
Did he had white hair? Keep your head down! Did he had white hair?
Babe:
He was bald.
Janeway:
Bald? The son-of-a-bitch has shaved his head! He's here! And he's panicked!
Babe:
Why is he after me?
Janeway:
Because your brother was one of the couriers that transported the diamonds to Paris. And obviously, Szell thinks Doc said something to you before he died. Now did he say anything to you?
Babe:
What do you mean my brother? You're saying my brother worked for Szell?
Janeway:
[shouts]
No! He worked for us! Everything we do cuts both ways. Szell ratted on all of his buddies. He kept track on all of the old Nazis throughout the world. Whenever we want to bring one of them in, we went to Szell. Now listen, Babe. You gotta do one thing for me, just one thing.
Babe:
Name it. What?
Janeway:
Quit protecting Doc!
Babe:
I'm not.
Janeway:
He kept himself alive long enough to tell you something. Now what did he say to you?
Babe:
He didn't say anything.
Janeway:
He must've said something. Tell me what he said!
Babe:
[screams]
Nothing!

Transcript:
Things are coming together.
Down, or your head gets blown off.
Those two guys I wasted
work for Christian Szell.
- Know that name?
- No.
He did experiments at Auschwitz.
He was called The White Angel,
Der Weiße Engel, due to his white hair.
The wealthiest and most
wanted Nazi left alive.
He's hiding out in Uruguay.
In '45, Szell told Jews in Auschwitz
he'd help them escape for a price.
He started out with gold, naturally,
but went on to diamonds.
Heard this?
Szell saw the end early.
His brother took the
diamonds to America
to a safe deposit box in New York.
Szell's brother had the key.
The only other key
Szell kept in Uruguay.
If he comes out to use it,
he'll expose himself to great risk.
Everything went fine till his
brother got killed by an oil truck.
Why was it natural
to start with gold?
He took it from the Jews'
teeth before he burned them.
Szell was a dentist.
He's not coming to America,
Mr Janeway. He's here.
No. We'd have known it.
The dentist almost killed me.
He kept saying, "Is it safe?"
White hair? Keep your head down!
Did he have white hair?
He was bald.
He's shaved his head!
He's here, and he's panicked.
- Why is he after me?
- Your brother was a diamond courier.
Szell thinks Doc said something
to you before he died.
- Did he?
- You say my brother worked for Szell?
No! He worked for us.
Everything we do cuts both ways.
Szell ratted on all his buddies.
He kept track on all the Nazis.
When we wanted to bring
one in, we went to Szell.
Babe, you gotta do one
thing for me, just one thing.
- Quit protecting Doc!
- I'm not.
- He kept alive to say something.
- He didn't.
- He must have. Tell me!
- Nothing!
Shit!
I thought you killed them.
You killed them!
You killed them!
You killed them!
You fucking killed them!
You killed my brother!
I don't think he knows anything.
I think he knows too much.
You can afford to think
what you wish. I can't.
The gun had blanks,
the knife a retractable blade.
Hardly original, but effective enough.
I think you'll agree.
I'm told you are a graduate student.
Brilliant, yeah?
You're an historian,
and I am part of history.
I should have thought you
would have found me interesting.
Frankly, I am disappointed
in your silence.
Why do you have so little accent?
I had alexia as a child.
Alexia is a disease...
I know, it's where you can't
understand written speech.
Highest marks.
At any event, my writing is childish still,
but I'm a fanatic about spoken language.
I envy you your school days.
Enjoy them.
It's the last time in your life
no one expects anything of you.
I know I behaved terribly,
but I had to be sure what you knew.
You see...
I'm positive your
brother meant to rob me
when I left the bank
with my diamonds.
I don't know anything.
- Did Scylla plan the robbery alone?
- Robbery?
- You know the value of diamonds?
- No, I don't.
Neither do I. Not in today's market.
Tomorrow, I must go and find
out before I go to the bank.
You see...
Your brother was incredibly strong.
Strength is often inherited.
He died in your arms.
He travelled far and in
great pain to do that.
There has to be a reason.
I don't know anything.
Karl!
Please don't worry.
I'm not going into that cavity.
That nerve's already dying.
A live, freshly-cut nerve
is infinitely more sensitive,
so I'll just drill into a healthy
tooth until I reach the pulp.
Unless, of course,
you can tell me that it's safe.
Erhard!
He knew nothing. If he'd known,
he would have told.
Get rid of him.
I don't think you've heard the news.
- What is that?
- Your flight is at 1:00 tomorrow.
- You are a very confident young man.
- It's all a front.
Just think of me as any
young executive on the come.
You're uncontrollable.
What you offer us is valuable, but it's
not worth the chaos you're causing.
And if I'm unable to conclude
my business by 1:00?
You'll just have to
manage that, won't you?
As far as we're concerned,
Mr Szell, you're a relic.
And you're on your way.
I find you rather detestable.
May I say that without
hurting your feelings?
Praise from Caesar.
I'm just doing my job.
I believe in my country.
So did we all.
Jesus!
Come on, unlock it.
