* DatedHistory: The movie puts Mengele in Paraguay (though the mothers of the kids are Brazilian), his speculated real life location. He truly went there for sometime, but in the 1970s he was ''really'' in Brazil (where he died in 1979, meaning that besides the deteriorated health he could have seen the movie).

** AdolfHitler, too, in the sense that merely creating a clone of him (and raising him in a near-identical way) is enough to potentially bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. If nothing else, he is [[TheDreaded dreaded]] enough that everyone fears this outcome. Social, political, economic factors and everything else be damned!

The novel and film are a speculative fiction type story involving infamous Nazi scientist Mengele (known as the "Angel of Death" for the extent of death he inflicted upon his victims during the Holocaust) trying to resurrect the Third Reich by cloning Hitler and recreating the events of his youth in order to make sure his Hitler Clones become as much like the original as possible.
