** More personally, Miller always, always changes the subject whenever someone asks him why he's looking for Roschmann.

* ArgentinaIsNaziland: Literally, as the ODESSA is said to be based there (a member asks what he assumes is another one "you're from Buenos-Aires?") Egypt is also Naziland, as several alumni are retired there and the ODESSA is trying to curry favor with Nasser's regime [[spoiler:by giving it the means to destroy Israel]]. Most disturbing, however, is the notion that ''Germany'' is still Naziland and that a number of people who really should be dead or imprisoned for war crimes are still walking around. Wiesenthal explains this while showing Miller records that show that various police officers he knows from his work as a reporter were all former SS members, and explains, with regards to a current wanted war criminal: "they can't arrest him. He used to be their superior officer."

Added DiffLines:

* ChangeTheUncomfortableSubject: the attitude of practically every German over a certain age towards the Holocaust, according to Forsyth. As a result, Miller's generation has an incomplete picture at best of the recent past and how something like Nazism could have happened.


Added DiffLines:

* DirtyCoward: Roschmann. He ran away in battle and tried to commandeer a vehicle meant for Wehrmacht soldiers to make his own escape. [[spoiler:When an officer tried to stop him, he shot him in the back]].


Added DiffLines:

* FriendOnTheForce: Miller has one, but it's not as much help as he'd like.


Added DiffLines:

* InterserviceRivalry: discussed between the Wehrmacht and the SS. It's noted that during the war, the two organizations largely despised each other, but that since 1945, the ODESSA has put a lot of effort into propaganda convincing Wehrmacht veterans that the SS too were just ordinary and patriotic soldiers.


Added DiffLines:

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Miller delivers a terrific one to Roschmann towards the end of the book (see AuthorFilibuster above).

** An even bigger one just before: [[spoiler:That was my father]].
