Although Brunhilde Pomsel always described herself as just being a sideline figure and not at all interested in politics, she nevertheless got closer to one of the worst criminals in world history than anyone else presently alive. Today aged 105, Pomsel used to work as a secretary, stenographer, and typist for the Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels.

she gives away more than she thinks - -

This is a slow moving film that lets this awful woman peel a few layers to show the deep seated resentment toward the Jews she had worked for before the war and her not so skillfully hidden enjoyment at the suffering of a Jewish "friend",. She thinks she is cleverly disguising this with her "poor them" nonsense, One of the best unintentionally honest interviews with a real unrepentant Nazi.

This movie has not english translation. It starts with English writing telling you who she is, however, when she is talking there is not German to English translation. Rip OFF

She was young and beautiful and could type

There wasn't much depth of character, considering how close she was to the high command. Maybe that's why she was chosen. She was eye candy and would not break any rules.

Powerful history lesson

Democracy is fragile. People are willing to follow all kinds of cat catchers if they only strike the right tone.
Do you want the total war?
