A portrait of the closest associate, secretary and typist of the notorious Joseph Goebbels, Brunhilde Pomsel.

Brunhilde Pomsel was closer to Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels than anyone alive today. She was his personal secretary and stenographer. Having lived through and been a part of the major historical shifts and ruptures of the 20th century, she is worried; people tell her that the threat of fascism has long been eliminated, but Brunhilde Pomsel makes it perfectly clear that they are deluded.
