Re: WW2 Film 'The man with the Iron Heart',
Also known as "Operation Anthropoid". It was already known how sever reprisals would/could be, as it was being carried out all over occupied Europe for years prior to 1942. Reinhard Heydrich was one of Hitler's favourites, so reprisals was always going to be brutal. The Nazis had wiped out entire towns/villages for far less.
As we know, Reinhard Heydrich was thrown out of the Gestapo for cruelty.
