In Whispering Birches, Janek plays the cynical hardened Kapo who has got used to death and deprivation. At the end of the camp, he is so hardened that he regrets leaving its bounds. He narrates the story of Franz's change from brutal SS guard to compassionate minder. He survives the camp, but we see that he is psychologcally disturbed that he commits a form fo suicide by allowing himself to bleed to death.
