The Great Brinksmeyer Robbery - S2-E18

Factual error: In the restaurant in Hammelburg, where Schultz discovers Hogan and Newkirk, there's an advertisement for "Brauerei der Jager, Stadt Wien." (Wien = Vienna) Vienna and Hammelburg are more than 500km apart, and if Hammelburg were near Düsseldorf, where the series puts it, it would be more like 700km. That's a bit far away for a brewery to advertise in the pre-globalisation era.

The Great Brinksmeyer Robbery - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When Hogan is trying to get the woman drunk, they take their first sip of brandy and put their glasses down. Hogan's is full, and he switches the full one for the empty one. He picks up the empty one with his right hand. When the camera cuts to a wide shot of the two of them, it's in his left hand.

Answer: It's a slang term for an isolated jail cell. In wartime, POWs who attempted to escape or otherwise thwart their captors might be punished with solitary confinement, often in a cramped, poorly ventilated, windowless space.
