** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in Else's case since the entire film is told through Sophie's POV. If Else was a Gestapo mole, Sophie would've had no way of finding this out in the time she had left.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Judge Freisler and Investigator Mohr are probably best know to English-speaking audiences as [[Film/{{Downfall}} General Monhke and Walther Hewel]], respectively. Julia Jentsch also briefly appeared in the first scene of ''Film/{{Downfall}}'' as one of the secretarial applicants, although audiences will most likely recognise her from her role in ''Film/TheEdukators''.

* KangarooCourt: Complete with an entirely cardboard defence, and presided over by the [[ThoseWackyNazis wackiest, shrillest, most fanatical Nazi]] they could get their hands on.
* KarmaHoudini: Robert Mohr was briefly interned by the French in 1947, but ultimately never stood trial for his activities as a member of the Gestapo, and died a free, [[NaziGrandpa an old man in 1977]].

* RealityIsUnrealistic: You might think that actor Andre Hennicke as Roland Friesler is overracting. He isn't. We have film footage of the RealLife Friesler at some of his [[KangarooCourt show trials]] where Friesler makes Hennicke look positively subdued.

* GratuitousEnglish: The opening scene of Sophie and her room-mate Gisela singing along to a record of BillieHoliday's "Sugar". Terribly.
