They were able to confirm that his dates were accurate, but not enough to prove that Josef is who he says he is.
However, in order to actually prove that Josef is Reiner, Sage must uncover information from Josef that only Reiner would know such as a confession to some of his personal crimes that nobody else would know. It just so happened that Sage's grandmother, Minka, was a survivor of the Holocaust and was a prisoner at Auschwitz. After much persuading Leo manages to convince Minka to open up about her past.
She tells them of her time in Poland as a teenager, moving into a ghetto and following that to Auschwitz, as well as how she survived the Holocaust. She also explains a story that she began writing in childhood with her best friend Darija and carried on writing throughout Auschwitz, as this story was found soothing by other inmates, and an SS guard known as Franz Hartmann expresses interest in the story as he believes it explains his complex relationship with his brother.
He offers her small comforts such as warmth and food scraps in exchange for 10 pages of the story each day. One day upon arriving to work for Franz, accompanied by Darija who she had smuggled in with her to warm her up , she catches his cruel older brother Reiner, Franz's superior, stealing money out of the safe that was originally taken from dead inmates.
To prevent Minka from turning him in, he shoots Darija in the face, killing her instantly, and blames Minka for the theft, leading to her being sent from Auschwitz in a death march in , which she survives.
With Leo and Sage returning the following day with photographs of Nazi generals, Minka is able to positively identify one of the guards as Reiner Hartmann, stating "I would never forget the man that murdered my best friend". In order to have Josef arrested and extradited , an eyewitness account was needed, something that only Reiner would know, so Sage is sent by Leo to talk to Josef, wearing a wire to record his confessions. When she asks what the worst thing he ever did was, with his reply being the murder of Darija, and the blaming of Minka for the theft.
He also explains about how the bullet was meant for Minka, but hit Darija instead as he has an unstable hand that was injured in the front lines. This confession upsets Sage greatly, and with having the material she needs, leaves his house and returns to Leo. Not long after hearing Josef's confession, Sage receives a call saying that Josef is in the hospital from an attempted suicide attempt he tried to kill himself by mixing his medication with a salt substitute, which he was told by his doctor would kill him.
Sage begins to ponder her relationship with Adam, after running into him with his arm around his wife in a cafe while she is with Leo, she breaks up with him, as she realises she is no longer happy being the other woman , and that she doesn't love him anymore. As he is now the one chasing her, instead of the other way around, Adam comes to Sage's house and proposes, telling her that he is filing for divorce so he can marry her, but she tells him to leave.
While Josef is in the hospital, Sage learns that her grandmother Minka has died in her sleep, which Sage blames herself for, as she thinks that making her remember all the details about her time in the Holocaust is what killed her.
At the funeral wake at Sage's house, Sage is overwhelmed by the number of people present, so Leo takes her away to a hotel, where the two have sex, and Leo confesses he loves her, leading to them entering into a relationship.
Upon Josef's release from hospital, Sage decides to help him achieve his death wish. After an in-depth chat with Mary about forgiveness, Sage decides she cannot forgive Josef for the crimes he committed against humanity. Josef further confesses to Sage that the worst crime he ever committed was not Darija's murder, but watching his brother choke to death in front of him and choosing not to save him.
Sage poisons him with a pastry exactly like the ones her great-grandfather used to make her grandmother, with Monkshood inside instead of cinnamon and chocolate.
His last words are "how does it end", with Sage replying "like this" and leaving, not realising that the words were in fact about Minka's story, which she never completed. After rifling through his possessions, Sage also finds the story that her grandmother wrote in Auschwitz on the back of photos of dead Jews which kept her alive through the Holocaust, which had been taken by Reiner's brother Franz, who had made up his own ending to the story as he was desperate for closure.
Sage suddenly realises that Josef Weber was not in fact Reiner Hartmann, but his younger brother Franz, and she has killed a man who was not who she thought he was, but realises that Franz's conscience was not clear either, as he was still an SS officer.

His dachshund comes closer on her leash to lick at a spot of flour on my pants. Maybe that person will remember that no matter how long it takes, for the rest of his life, this government will pursue him.
And yes, Grandma Minka wore sweaters, even when it was ninety degrees out, but she also wore too much blush and leopard prints. I know this is because some people come here to talk, while others come to just listen.
