Joseph Goebbels' secretary, Brunhilde Pomsel, dies aged 106
One of last people close to Nazi leadership was subject of film last year, but felt no sense of guilt for Hitler’s crimes
Brunhilde Pomsel, a former secretary to the Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and one of the last people alive who had close contact with the Nazi leadership, has died at the age of 106.
Pomsel died in her sleep in Munich on Friday night, said Florian Weigensamer, a director and producer of a documentary feature about her life.
She spent three years working for Hitler’s close confidante right up until his death on 1 May 1945, when Goebbels and his wife, Magda, poisoned their six children before killing themselves.
Pomsel, who had accompanied the Goebbels into Hitler’s bunker in the dying days of the Nazi regime, described being “dumbstruck” on hearing the news. She told the makers of the documentary, A German Life, which is due to open in British cinemas later this year: “I will never forgive Goebbels for what he did to the world or for the fact that he murdered his innocent children.”
