Summary :

It is early morning in Vienna, when famous Nazi hunter Yakov Lieberman receives a phone call from one of those enthusiastic young people who 'threaten' to help him in his dangerous job. This one thinks he's heard Dr. Mengele speak, the Angel of Death who performed gruesome experiments on the population of concentration camps. The young man plays him a tape: a bunch of old men discussing how the future of the Arian race can be furthered by killing 94 sixty-five year old men within the next two years, civil servants, married to younger wives and with a single child. Lieberman is ready to dismiss what he has heard, when he hears over the phone how the young man is killed. Then nothing. Then, hardly audible, a breath, one that sounds icy cold with hatred.

Why do 94 men need to be killed?
