Nazi propaganda chief Goebbels' secretary dies at 106

MUNICH, Germany, , (Pakistan Point News - APP - 30th Jan, 2017 ) - The former secretary of Nazi Germany's propaganda boss Joseph Goebbels died aged 106 last week, on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the maker of a documentary about her said Monday. Brunhilde Pomsel died on January 27 in a care home in the southern city of Munich, said Christian Kroenes, who conducted extensive interviews with her for his 2016 film "A German Life". Pomsel, who worked for Goebbels as a secretary and stenographer for three years, had insisted she had no idea of the Holocaust that claimed the lives of six million Jews while it was happening.

"We knew nothing," she said in the film. "We ourselves were all trapped in a vast concentration camp," she said, referring to the totalitarian state of Adolf Hitler. As one of half a dozen secretaries in Goebbels' office, working there from 1942 until the 1945 collapse of the Nazi regime, Pomsel was among the last eyewitnesses to the inner circle of top Nazis. In "A German Life", she insisted she felt no guilt and also said: "I could not put up resistance -- I was too much of a coward."
