In the so-called paradise ghetto of Theresienstadt, the Nazis prepare for a visit by neutral observers by cleaning up the village, distributing new clothes to the inhabitants and setting any number of happy scenes. The visit goes so well that the Nazis decide to make a film for which Aaron Jastrow must write script. Those plotting to overthrow Hitler make one last attempt on July 20, 1944 resulting in the execution of Count von Stauffenberg and the other plotters. Field Marshall Rommel is seriously hurt in a car accident but he too must pay the price for his participation in the plot. Still in the Pacific, Pug Henry prepares for the battle of Leyte Gulf while Byron becomes the commanding officer of his submarine. Natalie and Aaron are transferred to Auschwitz.
Did You Know?
Adm. Henry's flagship is the USS Iowa (BB62), lead ship of the Iowa class, which is seen earlier in this episode. However, as Byron approaches on the Admiral's barge, we see it approaching the BB60, the USS Alabama, a ship of the South Dakota class. See more
Capt. Victor 'Pug' Henry
This strange and tarnished victory only proves to me the subhuman stupidity of warfare in our age of science and industry. The technology and the means now dwarf the results. Either war is finished, or we are.
