Brunhilde Pomsel joined the Nazi party in 1942 not because of strong conviction but because it allowed her to take a lucrative job as the secretary of Joseph Goebbels. Now 105, Pomsel gives a mesmerising account of the war years. Though she denies any wrongdoing, she has been wrestling with a persistent sense of guilt ever since the war ended.

A remarkably powerful documentary that explores both the near inevitable state of becoming silent accomplices that so many Germans found themselves in during the war, and the inner workings of the Nazi propaganda machine.

Austria, 2016, 109 mins, German with English subtitles, directed by Christian Krönes, Olaf S. Müller, Roland Schrotthofer, Florian Weigensamer
