    In the movie Marathon Man, Mengele has to go to New York City to get money from his diamond stash because his operative who did that had a heart attack. A Holocaust survivor recognizes Mengele on the street and points to his shouting "Der Weisse Engel" because when the transports arrived at the camp he stood on the platform in his white lab coat with his arms outstretched like an angel, directing some into the work camp and some up to the gas chamber. (Maybe he was also called the Angel of Death.)
