When Dreyman looks through the files in the Stasi archives, near the end of the film, he wants to find out what "HGW XX/7"'s real name is. The clerk flips through the card box to find Wiesler's card. Before he pulls it out, four cards by the same name of "Olga Wildenhain" can be seen, two of them even with a man's photo.
