Just one day after taking over the Dachau concentration camp, SS guards take four Jewish prisoners into the forest and gun them down. Three die immediately but the fourth lives and, for some reason, is taken to a hospital where he is able to tell people about what is going on.

Prosecutors being a quiet investigation, but are informed that Dachau is off limits to them because it is under the jurisdiction of the SS. This signals that Nazi Party organs like the SS are being placed outside the law where they will be allowed to execute the presumed will of Adolf Hitler directly, without interference from the traditional state bureaucracy or regulations.
