The name of the German physicist Berg was instructed to shoot was Werner Heisenberg, head of the German Atomic Bomb program. However, by the time Moe got to Heisenberg, the German Heavy Water facilities in Norway had been blown up; the ferry carrying the heavy water was sunk by the Norwegian resistence. Without heavy water, the Germans couldn't make an A-Bomb. The OSS actually knew all that when they sent Berg on the mission...they simply wanted to double-check. In fact, IIRC, Berg didn't even have the magazine inserted into his Colt M1908 .32 Auto pistol.
