A German Life

.

Although Brunhilde Pomsel always described herself as just being a side-line 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 secretary, stenographer and typist for the Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels. Brunhilde Pomsel’s life mirrors the major historical ruptures of the 20th century and German life thereafter. Nowadays, many people presume that the dangers of war and fascism have long been overcome. Brunhilde Pomsel makes it clear that this is certainly not the case.

Press

  • Pomsel is giving one of the first, and last, in-depth interviews of her life. Often, end-of-life statements such as these are suffused with a sense of guilt. But Pomsel is unrepentant.
    The Guardian
  • A German Life is a contrapuntal fugue between official images and a personal voice.
    The Huffington Post
  • Her story sheds light on human nature, especially under a dictatorship.
    Haaretz
  • A German Life is an extraordinary, timeless and essential masterpiece in documentary filmmaking. In fact, A German Life is also a very timely film as the analogy with todays events is inevitable.
    The Film Prospector
  • A tiny, frail woman with a remarkable memory and a keen interest in current affairs, she delivered a warning from history to the politicians and voters of today. “It seems like Europe is collapsing and everything is fracturing again.”
