Memory Lane Monday: Brunhilde Pomsel

Hitler and Goebbels.January 11, 1911 - January 27, 2017.Over the weekend in Munich, former secretary to Joseph Goebbels, Brunhilde Pomsel, died at 106.

Joining the Nazi Party in 1942, of the Nazi Propaganda Minister, she claims to have only typed for, Pomsel said, “He had well-groomed hands. He probably had a manicure every day. There was really nothing to criticize about him.”After she served 5 years in a Soviet camp, Pomsel returned to Germany and worked in broadcasting until retiring in 1971.

Really? Nothing?

Explaining her allegiance to the Nazi Party as, “Everyone was doing it,” when asked if she felt guilty about her actions, Pomsel made it clear that, “No, I wouldn’t see myself as being guilty. Unless you end up blaming the entire German population for ultimately enabling that government to take control. That was all of us. Including me.”

If you’re interested in more, Pomsel’s role in the Third Reich was covered in last year’s A German Life directed by Christian Kroenes.
