Eric Ostergan was a doctor and a member in the Anti-Hitler underground. Eric and his fellow members managed to break Hitler's code and deciphered certain documents, in which one of them, Hitler mentioned the invasion of Poland in the following day.

In panic, Ostergan fled and warned the people of Poland, including the deported sergeant John Kowalski who didn't take his advice seriously. After the invasion turned out to be real, Ostergan was hit by a plane, after he contacted the government in Warsaw, and died after he told Kowalski how much he despised him for letting the invasion happen.[1]
