** Unfortunately TruthInTelevision, as, if not many, then at the very least quite a few former Nazi officials, particularly from the security apparatus (SS and SD), were employed (and sometimes had their records erased) by the Western Allies in their respective administrations, later quietly gaining a few posts under the West German government. This did not happen in the Soviet occupation zone, where denazification was more thorough, brutal and swift (arguably with the other extreme often happening: people not affiliated with the Nazis whatsoever being denounced and essentially barred from participation in society because a distant relative of theirs had been in the SS). * KilledMidSentence: Schmidt * LaResistance

Foregone Conclusion that Germany lost
* AllGermansAreNazis: Averted, none of the five main characters are Nazis and are depicted as normal people living in Nazi Germany.

* ForegoneConclusion: Nazi Germany loses World War II.

* HomeByChristmas: In the opening scenes, five friends have one last drink in Berlin. Two of them are leaving for service in Operation Barbarossa, one of them has volunteered to be a nurse on the front, another is an aspiring singer, and the last one is Jewish. They leave, hoping that by Christmas, Russia will be crushed and all of them will be reunited in that bar. [[spoiler: The war ends four years later, Germany is defeated, and two of the friends don't make it back.]]
