“How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to give himself up individually to a righteous cause. Such a fine, sunny day, and I have to go, but what does my death matter, if through us thousands of people are awakened and stirred to action?”
As a child, Olga learned that the government and officials were not to be trusted. She learned this lesson when Bastian Goetze, until then a friend of hers, betrayed her and turned in a mutual friend.
Olga has faith that she is, deep down, a good person because of her risking her own life and limb opposing the Nazis on their home turf during WWII. She did have a moment of weakness toward the end of the war when Konrad Böhm interrogated her and forced her to name names of fellow resistance members.
Olga still struggles to cope with the first time she killed, though her cause was just. Her head-strong nature often gets her in trouble. Her quick action shooting an SS officer on the street did save the life of Marta Strauss who is still tracking her down to thank her and return the favor.
Olga knows there is more to the world than what’s seen on the surface because of the time she witnessed a Nazi general shot to death one day and up and walking the next. She knows there is a German doctor who treated the general and may possess secrets to some degree of immortality.
Now that the war is over, Olga has dedicated herself to tracking down the war criminals who escaped and anyone who helped them. Her efforts have led her to New York and a party ostensibly hosted to celebrate the Allied victory over the Axis forces. This goal is shared by Claude “Blanc,” a French resistance fighter who helped in her efforts in Germany.
