All three slept on narrow mattresses put on the floor for the night. There was a retractable wall bed in the cell, which none of them used out of respect for the others. Stroop described the destruction of the Warsaw Ghetto in minute detail, eager to mention the foreign Hilfswilliger "willing helpers" in the death of over 50, Rozmowy z katem Jews: This was exactly what we wanted.


We called them Trawniki men. Stroop is played by the actor Piotr Fronczewski. He also talked about the role of the canal communication, night fighting, rozmowy z katem armament of his troops, and the numbers of the ghetto defenders killed and caught daily as well as the plans of building a German representative housing estate on the site of the former ghetto.

In any normal society, based on meritocracy, he probably would never have been much more than a clerk. Probably he would have taken out his social rozmowy z katem on his wife or dog.

He's clearly a man whose most important driving force is to feel himself rozmowy z katem. He comes out with lots of sentimental bullshit about knightly valour.

I would argue all these leading Nazis were essentially sentimental.
