In prison, in Czechoslovakia, a war criminal was awaiting execution. This was Konrad Meinike, one time executive officer for Franz Kindler. He was an obscenity on the face of the earth. The stench of burning flesh was in his clothes.
Near the start of the movie when Meinike gets off the ship and is going through passport control, we hear him say to the officer 'I am traveling for my health', but his lips don't move because as he's approaching the checkpoint, the audience hears his thoughts as to why he's traveling.
