Quotes from Werner Klemperer's Characters

    • Ernst Janning:
      My counsel would have you believe that we were not aware of the extermination of millions. That we were only aware of the extermination of the hundreds. Does that make us any the less guilty? Maybe we didn't know the details. But if we didn't know, it was because we did not want to know.
    • Emil Hahn:
      Traitor! Traitor!
    • Judge Dan Haywood:
      Order, order! Put that man back in his seat and keep him there!
    • Ernst Janning:
      I am going to tell the truth if the whole world conspires against it. I am going to tell them the truth about their Ministry of Justice. Werner Lampe an old man who cries into his Bible now. An old man who profited from the property expropriation of every man he sent to a concentration camp. Friedrich Hofstetter รข?? the butcher who knew how to take orders, who sent men before him to be sterilized like so many digits. Emil Hahn the decayed, corrupt bigot, obsessed by the evil within himself. And Ernst Janning worse than any of them, because he knew what they were, and he went along with them. Ernst Janning who made his life...excrement... because he walked with them.
