* CompleteMonster: ''Hans''. He murders and rapes little girls throughout the movie and when caught shows no real remorse for his actions instead foisting the blame on his supposed "illness" and then has the balls to launch into a [[{{MoralDissonance}} self-righteous tirade against his mob captors]]... [[{{BigDamnVillains}} for stopping his reign of terror.]] Yeah.

** Worse still, remember that the Nazis only assumed power two years after this film was released. How do you think they are going to treat a mentally-ill Jew?

* JerkassHasAPoint: The prosecutor of the mob trial may be a criminal but he does have a point that whether or not Hans is crazy he is a threat to the children of Germany regardless and
killing him would make them more safe.
