Jews being loaded onto trains in Warsaw as the narrator reads a quote from Globke: "The Jew is a foreign body in all European lands." Still photographs of Himmler visiting Auschwitz. Footage of present-day West German politicians. Himmler becomes Globke's boss and assigns him certain responibilities in other countries, including Italy (footage of Mussolini, Italian troops) and Greece (Globke's connection to foiling the efforts of the Red Cross to rescue the Jews of Salonika). Audio interview with Max Merten, a Nazi who was stationed in Greece and now lives in West Germany, after serving a long prison term. Yet another area of Globke's responsibility was the office that monitored "Personenstandsangelegenheiten" (marital status, births, death). Marriages between German men and foreign women was forbidden.
