Im toten Winkel. Hitlers Sekretärin

Blind Spot. Hitler's Secretary

For the first time ever, 81-year-old Traudl Jung appears on camera to tell of her life. She was Adolf Hitler's private secretary from the fall of 1942 until the end of the Nazi regime. She worked for him in the Wolf's Lair, on the Obersalzberg, in the Führer's bunker in Berlin, and in the end, she recorded his last will and testament. Fifty-six years after the war's end an important eyewitness speaks up, and her experiences have made her a fierce opponent of National Socialism. At the same time she seems unable to forgive the young girl she once was, for her fondness for Hitler, for her naivité and ignorance.
