The Yakuza is sent to seek out Juliana in the neutral zone, but since Joe had Japanese targets, the Kempeitai is not all that interested in finding his killer.

Ed and Childan get back to Denver where Childan sells the belt buckle and the two of them share a goodbye toast. Sampson spots Ed at the bar and takes him aside to tell him that Frank is alive. Ed agrees to go with Sampson to see him.

Frank’s bar mitzvah is smartly intercut with Himmler’s speech promoting Jahr Null, the destruction of tradition and history in order to create a single, shared, unique culture.

The joyful celebration of a centuries-old tradition combined with Himmler’s words in contrast to Sampson’s words makes one realize how important those traditions and cultures are and the strength that they bring to the people who share them — and just why the Nazis want to eradicate them so much.
