disinterest in what is happening. She was simply a careerist who went along like everyone else with the regime. It is a candid memoir - "I did this, I didn't do anything else, I'm not ashamed and I don't apologize for it, and I challenge anyone who says today that they would have fought back that they wouldn't have. If I'm guilty of anything it was that I was stupid"
The book is more a reflection on the fears and attitudes of the editor and translator Thor D. Hansen than it is about Ms. Pomsel, who uses her story as a warning to what can happen when we turn inward and allow politics to stampede past us. He sees a dangerous trend today with Trump and a push toward the right which he sees happening in America and Europe. Everyone needs to do his / her part to prevent another Nazi Germany from happening again and that means defending all forms of democratic government by staying involved politically ,getting the vote out, fighting "fascism" and right-wing tendencies at every turn - never be apathetic to what's happening...be a good little democrat, believe what the news networks tell you as opposed to internet gossip, embrace globalization and mass migration, and you will be happy with our democratically elected leaders in our pink padded universe. Not what I expected. More of a polemic of Thor Hansen than a book of memoirs detailing Goebbels. She didn't know the man at all.
