Seventeen Moments of Spring (Episode 4) (1973) movie


Gorky Film Studio SEVENTEEN MOMENTS OF SPRING Part 4. From Yustas to Aleks. I’m still convinced that no one of
the serious politicians of the West will ever start negotiations
with German SS or SD officials. However, since the order was received,
I am starting their realizations. I believe that it can
only be executed, if I report to Himmler the
information I received from you. Relying on his support, I could
subsequently find those officials, who are trying to establish the
channels for such negotiations. I’ll write a “denunciation” to Himmler.
The details I’ll organize here. I will inform you about
the progress right away both in the confirmation of your
hypothesis and in its refutation. I do not see any other way
at this time for it. In the case of approval, please to
transmit the “good” to Ervina. Yustas. He is now closer to his
failure than ever before. If he goes directly to Himmler, it
will the end immediately and nothing will save him. Even if
Himmler would decide to play games with him a little.
Although, hardly that would happen. Reichsfurer SS is not a save
person to play games with. This is for tomorrow morning for him -Order him NOT to go to Himmler!
-Yes, sir. Right away. Shtirlitz was driving to see Ervin. By the morning he should have
had an answer from the Center. Ervin was an owner of a small
firm repairing old record players. That gave him an opportunity to
travel around the country, attending clients, and communicating
with many different people. Come on! Move it! Move it faster! Work harder! Move it faster! Just take a look at it,
so many cars got stock now. If they fly back again now, nothing
will remain of us, but ruins. No, today they will not fly again,
I think. It is too cloudy today. “nowhere else in the world”,
-thought Shtirlitz, policemen love to command as much
as here at home in my Germany”. Shtirlitz suddenly found himself
thinking that way about Germany, and was astonished by his own thought.
He did think of Germany as a “home”. A paradox, isn’t it? Certainly not. He lived in Germany long time
already. He knew its people. And he believed in its future. He often recalled that day, when he
saw Ernst Thalman for the first time. Ernst Thalmann, the German Communist,
was walking in front of the column of demonstrators, and workers from all
sides guarded this column. To be a soldier of the Revolution means
to have an unbreakable faith in it. Such strong faithfulness, which
can’t be broken even by death. That’s how once said Ernst Thalmann,
the leader of German Communists. And Thelmann was a true soldier
of the revolution to his last day. And he fought to the end to the
happiness of his people. Pass quickly! -What is going on there?
-The street is closed. – Pass along via the next street.
– What actually has happened there? Englishmen dropped some extra
large super-powerful bomb. Nothing remained at all.
Everywhere ruins only. I am sorry, shtandartenfurer,
it is forbidden to be here now. The field engineers fear that
there are time bombs in there. – Well, this means then that we’ll
take off to the Creator together. -Did all the residents perish? It is difficult to say yet.
There were many ambulances around. -Did any belongings remain intact?
-What! You see it for yourself. Nothing left. — In Russian Language:
Mommy! Oh mommy! Mommy! She was brought to the hospital
with a severe brain concussion. She was in a total shock. They dug for half-hour before she
was found under the fragments of the beaten brick. It was a true
miracle that she was still alive. She is a subhuman Polish woman.
She gave birth to such a giant boy. -She is not Polish.
-And who is she then? Russian, Czech? In her passport it said that
she is German. In her coat they found a passport
of a German woman. Ketrin Kinn. -Maybe it was not her coat at all?
-May be. What a great chubby little boy.
Not less than five kilos. A real giant. Will you call the Gestapo yourself
or do you want me to do that? You make the call, but a bit later.
We have still much work. – Sure. – Hello, frau Kinn.
– Hello. I wanted to ask you only
a few questions. – Can you hear me?
– Yes. I will not disturb you long
time with my questions. – Who are you and where are from?
– I am from the insurance company. What about my husband?
Is he dead? I’d like to ask you, at the
time when the bomb fell, where was he in the apartment? He was in the shower room. You, I see, had some dry fuel
for your water heater. In our company we get none of that. My husband bought some
totally by a chance. I hope you are not tired yet? Is he gone? I brought you sad news,
frau Kinn. He is gone. We help to all, who suffered during
that barbarous air bombardment. What aid would you want to obtain,
while you are here in the hospital? You will be fully provided with food. Your clothing will be prepare by
the time of your discharge from here. What a charming chubby little baby! -Is it a girl?
-No, it’s a boy. -Is he a noisy boy?
-No. I haven’t heard his voice yet. The babies probably must
frequently cry, do you know that? My own babies yelled terribly. My membranes would burst from
their howls. My kids were born tiny. You have
a big baby. And those big babies are the quiet ones. If you can,
please, answer to one more question. For what sum of money was
insured your property? I do not really know.
My husband was dealing with that. And with what bank branch,
if you can recall that? It seems, the one on the corner
of Kurfurstendam and Kaunshtrasse. That is branch 27.
I will make all the inquiries. And the amount of the insurance?
Do you think you could recall that? -It seems, is was for 10K Marks
-It is a large sum of money. A young mommy like you should not
have any stresses. Believe me. I am a father of three children.
All that stress can affect the milk for the little one. And you
will hear that he wouldn’t be happy. You must stop thinking about yourself.
That selfish time for you has ended forever. From now on you must think
firstly about your little baby. Yes, I will not worry or cry. Where are your relatives? Our company
could help them to come here. We cover trip expense and provide
some housing shelter. Well, not hotels, of course.
The hotels are broken or given to the army men. But we have
nice private guest rooms. Where shell we send this
information to and to whom? My relatives remained in Konigsberg,
I do not have any contacts with them. And what about your husband’s relatives?
Whom shell we notify about the misfortune? His all relatives are in Sweden.
But I am uncomfortable writing to them. His uncle is a great friend of Germany,
and we were asked not to write to him. Therefore we were sending letters
through the embassy or some one. Do you remember the address,
by any chance? I will first feed the baby, and
then will tell you the address. I will not interfere with this. While I am writing the address
of your uncle, Could you take a look if there
are any of your things there. Those are a few things that were
found around your apartment building. In your situation even a small
suitcase could be a great help. She recognized the suitcase instantly,
the one with a radio transmitter inside. Even small thing is a big help now days. His name is Franc Bakkinen. He lives Gustav,Georg Platz, 25,
Stockholm, Sweden. -Are you tired?
-Yes, a little. -Please take a close look.
-There are no our suitcases there. You may consider this
issue as resolved. In a day or so I will let you
know the results. The commissions I charge for my
work are extremely low. I will be very grateful to you for that. Himmler’s main office Chief Commander SS Ubergruppenfuhrer
General Karl Wolf -General Wolf, they just called
from the airport. The plane is ready. But weather will change to
worse in the evening. I am flying right now.
Call the airport and let them know. Here is everything what
Reichsfuhrer wants you to know. I’ll read this in the car. You will
go with me and then bring it all back. You may not take these documents outside.
There are three rather short notes in there. All right then.
I will examine them here. Please call Shellenberg to come to my office me now. -I just sent Wolf to Bern, Switzerland
to get in contact with Western Intelligence. – I think that was very wise of you.
– This is just insane, Shellenberg! -This is insane and a crazy adventurism. Are you talking about a possibility
of a failure of the entire operation? -I am talking about an entire
complex set of possibilities. -This all is your manipulation.
You made me come to this step. In the case of a failure of Wolf’s
trip all his documents will come to us first. -First they will come to general Venz. I am sorry, I did not understand? They will come to Kaltenbrunner. And I do not know, where they will
go then, to Bormann or to me. And you know well what Borman will
do if he obtains such documents. Can you imagine the Fuhrer’s
reaction is he sees them, especially with Bormann’s
explanations on top of that. – I did analyze such a possibility.
– What possibility? I did analyze the possibility that
these documents would reach Bormann. First of all, Wolf is obligated to
talk to the West only on behalf of field marshal Kesselring.
He is subordinated to him in Italy. He is the deputy of commander in Italy.
He is not under your subordination. This is good. Did you think of this in advance
or it just came to you right now? It came to me, as soon as
I learned about Wolf’s trip. – Please sit down.
– Thank you. Would you like to have a smoke. Himmler knew well that Shellenberg
was smoking only American “Camel” and never other cigarette brands.
On the day America entered the war, he did ask Shelenberg: “Where do
you get the enemy cigarettes from?” Shellenberg laughed and answered: “Once
some one smokes American cigarettes then one day he’ll betray his home
land”. Himmler did not forget that. I analyzed all possibilities,
including the unpleasant ones. What do you mean? What if Kesselring, or, in a worse case, his boss Goering, can prove their alibi in this matter? We will be able not to allow this
to happen by taking care of it in advance. Yes, we will. And you correctly
derived beyond the limits in this game for your deputy Kaltenbrunner. He will help us in our game without
knowing that. Him and Muller. -This is good. What do you propose?
-To kill two woodcocks by a single bullet. This is not possible, but I am
not really a good hunter. The Fuhrer says that the allies
are about to break up. Which means that the break between
them is one of our primary tasks. How do you think would react Stalin
if he learns about the negotiations, which were conducted by German
General SS Wolf with the West. I can not predict his reaction precisely, but he will do something bad
against the West. I don’t doubt that. And as such, Wolf’s trip is a
large lie to Stalin created by us, which exactly
what the Fuhrer wants? Our legend: “negotiations” in
reality is a bluff for Stalin. So that’s the way we will report
to the Fuhrer about the operation in the case of its failure. I will
think about the data that you said to me. Do you want to know all the
fine details of the plan? You may spear me from the
very fine details. Bur in such a matter every fine
detail is very important though. What do you exactly mean by that? First, for the cover-up the operation
we’d have some one to sacrifice, some one fully non-related to us,
for the negotiations with the West. And then we will present materials
about this person to Fuhrer. In such case this will be presented
as a victory of our intelligence. “They uncovered insidious intentions
of the enemy”, that’s how Goebbels would say. Secondly, Wolf in Switzerland will
be monitored by thousands of eyes. Among them could be our own agents,
who’d immediately report about that here. Who will get the messages? Who will
report? Whose agent: mine or Mueller’s? An intellectual specialist, who sensibly
evaluates the moment, or a blind fanatic? Some crazy fanatic like
our Kaltenbrunner. So, I want that among the thousand
of eyes of the western allied spies Wolf to be observed by 5-6 pairs of
my eyes. Wolf will not know about our people. Those agents will transfer
information directly to me. And that will be our third alibi. In the case of failure we will
have to sacrifice Wolf. The information we had about
Wolf will become our alibi. -Your alibi. No. Our alibi. Whom do you want to send there? For the part one of the project,
Shellenberg had in mind Shtirlitz and the pastor whom he worked with. -Do you have any specific people for that?
-I do have good candidates. but I will not bother you with
those very fine details. You may go now. Detective of the Gestapo – Did you call for me, shturmbanfurer?
– Yes, Lenke. Take these photographs with the
suitcases and send them to the finger print examination.
I covered them with a splendid Norwegian varnish. Great for
finger prints. Process them quick! Finger print expertise reply from
the suitcase with a spy radio is here. The finger prints are discovered
on the spy transmitter and also on the suitcase. Well,
the imprints are not very good. Bring them here. February 23, 1945 , 09:00=09:00 AM Forces of 3rd Belorussian Front conducted
the offensives southwest of Koenigsberg. Forces of 1st Belorussian front with
the participation of the Polish army after a monthly siege liquidated
a large group of enemies, and liberated the city of Poznan. Today, on February 23, 1945 was
announced the order of supreme commanders-in-chief Mr. Stalin about
the 27th anniversary of the Red Army. In the announcement the success of
the winter offensive of Russian troops, who on 1 January, 1945 brought down
on to the enemy unprecedented blow at the entire front line from the
Baltic to the Carpathians. Broke through the 1200 km of powerful
defense lines of the enemy and with heavy combats reached East Prussia
and the Visla river. 200 miles in length. From Warsaw to the lower flow of Oder
river for 400 miles in length. Deep into German Silesia for 300 miles. After the 40 days of the Soviet Army offensive, the German fascists were banished
from 300 cities and towns. 100 military plants and 2400
railway stations were captured. Controlling the network of railroads
of more than 15000 km Causing the enemy large losses
in manpower and materials. Soviet government received the message
from the US President, Roosevelt with the greeting in honor of the 27th
of anniversary of the Red Army. “in the expectation of our great
victory over the Nazi butchers “I want to express my most sincere “congratulation to the 27th anniversary
of the creation of the Red Army. “the important decisions, which we
signed in Yalta, will speed up the victory “and lay the stable foundation
of a strong world peace. “the heroic victories of the Red Army
together with the forces of the united nations “provide the achievement of our
common goal- peace in the whole world, based on the mutual understanding
and collaboration”. The prime ministers of Great Britain
Churchill in his message wrote: “The Red Army celebrates its 27th
anniversary with the triumph, “which caused the limitless
admiration of its allies “and which will bring an end to
the German militarism. “The future generations will always remember
and admire what the Red Army did for the victory, as we do now, being the witnesses of
that great sacrifice for the victory “. Today the Soviet leadership awarded
the orders and the medals to 45 French pilots, a part of a French
squadron “Normandy”, fighting in the Red Army. February 23, 1945, 09:00=09:00 AM Shtirlitz signed up for a
personal meeting with Himmler. That was an extraordinary measure,
but he did not have any other choice now. Yes. I understand. That’s right. In his leather folder he had a letter
to Himmler. After he was left without the radio connection with the Center,
he simply did not have another choice. To fulfill the assignments of the Center
it was necessary to secure Himmler’s support. Obtaining Himmler’s support and
using him as the official cover, would allow starting a search for those,
who plan negotiating with the West. And 30 minutes ago he wrote the
following letter to Himmler: To reichsfurer SS, Heinrich Himmler. Strictly secret. Personally. Reichsfurer! The interests of the nation force
me to write this letter to you. It became known to me from the journalist
sources of the neutral countries, that behind the backs SD and SS
some high officials are establishing contacts with the enemy, trying
sell out everything to the enemy. I am asking you to let me explain
my proposals for this problem. Please permit me, using my connections,
to inform you in more detail and to propose my plan of the
development of this situation, which seems to me more like a truth. Yours, shtandartenfurer SS Shtirlitz. If he is asked where did he get
such information from, he knew, on whom to refer. Three days ago was killed the film
reporter from Portugal Pueblos Wasserman, who was tightly connected with
the Swedes. So, such explanation of the information source, from his
point of view, was very reliable. Well, right now he was at Himmler’s
without letting Shellenberg know it. And that was the crude
violation of the subordination. Shtirlits was realizing that but
still was doing it because he knew that on Wednesdays and
Fridays Shellenberg worked from house in the country.
Today was exactly Friday. You are next, shtandartenfurer.
The conversation is 3 minutes only. Bring to reichsfurer the summary
of the killed and injured after the yesterday’s air bombing.
Bombing Berlin! But this no one could possible
have foreseen. Reichsfurer talks to
General Paul right now. Shell we report about you or you will
just go next without announcement? – I need you, Shtirlitz.
– I will come back in half-hour. What are you doing in here? You were not in today. I wanted
to report, but you were not in. You were at the airport,
and the matter is urgent. I am here to get a help for the
family of the killed colonel Krol. -What is wrong with his family?
-Tomorrow is the last transportation. Everyone was evacuated, but there
was no room for the Krol’s family found. What do you mean “there was
no place found”? Disgrace! Striking disgrace! Colonel Krol was with reichsfurer since
the first days of our Nazi movement. As soon as he died we forgot him…
How quickly we forget our old friends. I will call on behalf of reichsfurer
and take care of it. That is excellent.
Take care of it all by yourself. – Who is there?
– Kholman. What did you want, shtandartenfurer? Everything is ready.
They await you – you may go now. I need you now, Shtirlitz,
for a serious business. What a voice. He reports,
as if he is an artist of operetta. By a voice of stomach and with
the explicit desire to be liked by others. I feel sorry for the administrative
assistants. They always preserve significance. -Otherwise people will understand how useless they are.
-You are not right, administrative assistants are necessary. He is like a beautiful hunting dog. It is possible to talk to him and if
he has any brains everyone will envy. I knew one assistant, who
performed the role of impresario. He told to everybody about the
brilliance of his manager, finally he had to be killed in
an arranged car crash. -He was so very melodious. It irritated.
-Did you come up with that right now or is this the truth? -Certainly it just came up with that.
-It is funny. What about your colonel Krol story?
Is it a lie too? I am joking. Hail Hitler, friends. I am so glad to see you, guys. -Again contemplating some new insidiousness’s?
-Sure, we are always insidious with something. Aren’t we? -Our insidiousness is nothing
compared to yours. We are simple celestial angels
in comparison to you. It is pleasant some times, that
they consider you a devil. People die, memory about them
remains. Even such a memory. Well done, Holman. Everything
in order and done fast. Every one has his special way!
Don’t you think? Funny, Dietrich had freckles,
but I never noticed them. Did you know him? -Your adjutant on the special commissions.
-A complete change of guards. Let’s talk about the
serious business, Shtirlitz. I now need your pastor. Pastor Shlags, isn’t it?
Is he still alive and healthy? Is he still living with his nephews
and sister on Gartenshtrasse, 2? He is living there and is healthy. I need your pastor. I want to send him to Switzerland. Excellent. but I hope, you do not
want to send him to a mountain resort? Not at all. He will go there
searching for peace. So you mean that the pastor… would come back if we take his
sister with the children as hostages? I think, without a doubt he will return. One ton large bombs, not less than that. -Are they flying away? Or they not?
-They are flying away, but just to take more bombs. So, are you sure that after the
pastor returns he will not talk about the fact that you sent him
there for establishing the contacts? It depends who will ask him questions. It would be a good idea, if you
would happen the tape recordings of his conversation, and he himself would
somehow gets killed during an air bombing. -I will think about it.
-For how long? I would request a permission to
think the idea through. -How long will you be thinking the idea through?
-By tonight I will come with a solution. This is good. Does Reichsfurer know about your idea
of sending the pastor to search for peace? – No. Let’s say “No”. Is that clear?
– Completely clear. I am so glad that you so accurately
understand everything. – It is very pleasant for me to work
with you, Shtirlitz. – For me too. -You look so angry?
-I look angry? I am not angry. You know, when I am angry,
I look much gloomier. Now I am simply trying to think. If everything turns out right you will
be able to rest in the mountains for 5 days. There are excellent ski slops, the
snow is blue, the sunburn is brown. We forgot during the war about
so many wonderful things in life. First of all, we forgot ourselves. Like coats in the cloakroom
after a heavy drinking on Easter. – How long ago did you start writing poems?
– I never wrote poems at all. Honestly! A small lie gives birth to a
large distrust. I swear. I wrote everything in
my life, besides the poems. – Why? You can’t rhyme?
– I have idiosyncrasy to the rhyme. He was today on the brink of a
complete failure and discovery. Now, when 2 hours passed after
he left Himmler’s reception area, he more than ever understood, that
he was on the brink of his failure. And nevertheless, he considered that
the today’s day may be one of the most successful
days of his life. Firstly because after what happened today,
he still was alive. Secondly because he knew now that the negotiations
have started and they were started by Himmler. He could have been so close to
finding it out and still … And still could never have
found that out at all. Now he knows it. This is the
main thing now. He now realized that pastor’s
release was planned in advance and that the pastor will
be used as a scapegoat, and that Shellenberg decided
everything in advance. Now, once he knew all of that,
it was possible to act. Now he needs to drawn correct
conclusions and act according to them. Shellenberg believes, that the pastor
will become a false figure in the game, a scapegoat. What game? What operation?
Shtirlitz didn’t know that yet. One thing is clear that the pastor is
a bait, a cover up, a scapegoat. That’s how Shellenberg had planned
everything. But he did not consider that the pastor Shlag has in Switzerland
good strong connections. Which means, it is necessary to force pastor Shlag,
to use his influence against those, who will send him to Switzerland,
-thought Shtirlitz, Shtirlitz was hoping to use the
pastor as an extra channel of communication with the Center.
Now the pastor was going to play. a different role, a more critical one.
For the pastor it is now necessary to prepare such a legend, which
will cause a serious counter-interest toward other Germans, who arrived
or who will be arriving to Switzerland for negotiations. But the pastor alone means much and
means nothing. Extra insurance is necessary. It is still necessary to send
there someone else. Someone like professor Pleishner, who
was helping him for many years. But Karl Pleishner died, and
connections with the group of German resistance were broken
with his death. To find a person like him was extremely
hard or simply not possible for one evening. Hans! Here is your, coffee. Please. It is clear that an additional
person was required. An extra insurance was necessary. Also was clear the other thing. Shtirlitz wanted to use Himmler
in his game as a powerful cover, now he became the main opposing power. And it is again necessary to search for another powerful person whose support
will help Shtirlitz in his fight. February 23, 1945 Today will be a day off,
thought Shtirlitz. If not a whole day, then at least
an evening off. Today is February 23, the Red Army Day. This was the day,
which colonel Isaev celebrated always. He celebrated it differently,
depending on the circumstances. Leningrad, 1942 Stalingrad, 1943 Moscow, 1944 February 23, 1945, 21:35=09:35 PM For several days Aysman was
occupied by the papers of Shtirlitz’s work. He’s been through a pile of documents,
but in no way he could understand, why Shtirlitz fell under the suspicion? “under the cap”, as it was called
in the department. File of Fritz Shlag. A catholic priest.
Arrested 23 June 1944 Accused of hating the regime and
trying to kill the Fuhrer. A decision to arrest the pastor
receded by two denunciations. both of them were from the
parishioners of his own church. In the denunciations was indicated that
the pastor calls for the peace and the brotherhood with all the peoples.
He condemned the barbarism of wars and unreasonableness of bloodshed.
Investigation discovered that the pastor met with the former minister
Krauze, who has emigrated and lives now in Switzerland. They had
strong friendly relations. However there were no indications on
political connections of former Minister Krauze and the pastor. There was
nothing about that in the pastor’s file. Aysman was puzzled. Why the pastor was
transferred to the intelligence? Why wasn’t he sent in the Gestapo?
Why he became interesting for the Shellenberg’s people? He found the
answer in a short note, attached to the file. “Pastor Shlag twice actively
participated in pacifist meetings abroad.” -“They were interested in his
foreign connections”, understood Aisman. They were interested in his contacts
and that’s why the intelligence took him. Therefore he was transferred to Shtirlitz. And what Shtirlitz has to do with it?
Nothing at all. He just carried out the order. Special archive, please. I am Aisman from the 4th department.. Will you please look in the
archive, whether there are recordings of a pastor
Shlag’s questioning by shtandartenfurer Shtirlitz. -What if you wouldn’t a pastor?
-I am against such a speculative admittance. Let me rephrase the question then: Let’s say, if you would be defrocked
from the church. Would you then participate in the fight against the
regime? You already asked me about that before. Nine days ago. When you
brought me to that cute small restaurant. Nevertheless, please answer! Would you start fighting against
the regime, if you would be defrocked from the church? I do not know.
My entire life I hated violence. But for any one comes a moment,
when he no longer can bear it. Were you scared in the prison? I am scared through all the
11 years of your authority. That’s demagogy. Were you scared every single day
that spent in the prison? Yes, every single day. You wouldn’t want to go here again?
If we would assume a miracle, -that you will be allowed to
walk out free? -I wouldn’t want to have anything
with any of you in general. And what if I would have a small
condition attached to your freedom? No, I am not about spying on others.
We have enough informants. You sure wanted to ask about that? No, my condition is completely different. I just want you to maintain with me
good, human relationships. Do you want me to try changing
my personality or do you want – me to be a part of your games?
– I want you to be a part of our games. In such case I must be convinced, that the goal, which you pursue is
pure good and not evil. Otherwise it is impossible for me
to answer you positively. Consider that my purposes are
excess of honesty and goodness. What will you order me to do? I closely know a few people of science,
party functionaries and journalists. No, those are not from the opposition.
They fanatically devoted to the regime. It would be of a great
interest to me if you would talk with them. I will not ask you to write reports
about those conversations, I may not be sure that there will be
no dictaphones placed behind the wall, but you can go outside or into the
forest and have a talk there. I would be interested to hear your
opinion about that degree of evil or good, which you could identify
in those people. Could you do such a small
service for me? Either you excessively entrust me and are asking for help you because
you can’t ask any one else about that, either you are lying to me, then
this conversation is totally in vain and we will not find a common ground again.
You will remain a Nazi functionary, and I will remain a person,
who elects the other way, in order not to become a
functionary like you. What would convince you that
I am not lying to you? Will you please look into my eyes? Shell we consider this as an
establishment of trust between us? And that the agreement is almost signed? Hey you, steppe, you are so wide. Hey you, steppe, you are
full of freedom and joy. Oh you, Mother Volga river, Volga river you are so free
and wonderful. Get to me the information about
pastor Shlag’s behavior in prison. Everything about his personality,
contacts, conversations etc. The maximum of details. The answer, which was prepared in
one hour, proved to be unexpected. Pastor Shlag was released from the
prison in February 1945. In his case it was impossible to
understood, if he did agree to work for SD or his release was the consequence
of other incomprehensible reasons. In the file there was only a single
Special note from Shellenberg to let the pastor out under
the supervision of Shtirlitz. – Is that everything?
– Almost. One more little thing. A special secret agent worked with pastor
Sharg after his release from the jail. – Where are his reports?
– He was only directly connected to Shtirlitz. So there were no records or reports at all? In the interests of the operation
there were no reports or records conducted. Find this agent for me. But secretly, so that only three
people would know about that. You, me and that agent himself. End of part 4. Translated by Fooper01. Enjoy.
