A German Life
Synopsis of A German Life:
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.
After the screening, join us as Aleisa Fishman, historian for the Museum's Initiative on Holocaust Denial and Antisemitism, interviews Wendy Lower, acting director of the Museum’s Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies.
