A mortally wounded man comesto their door, begging to be let in. He asks for Karl, theirfather. Gerta and Max watch as Karl tries in vain to save the man's life. Before he dies, the stranger gives their father a bloodstained packet of documents, along with a message: 'For the sake of humanity, the Führer must die!'
