Although Brunhilde Pomsel described herself as a minor figure disinterested in politics, she got closer to one of the worst criminals in history than anyone else. Aged 105 during filming, she worked as secretary for the Nazi-Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels.

Her life mirrors the major historical ruptures of the 20th century. While the dangers of fascism are tempting to consider as a past concern, Pomsel’s story makes it clear that history is never all that far from repeating itself.
