In 1942 Germany, Traudl Junge was a young woman with dreams of becoming a ballerina when she was offered the chance of a lifetime. At the age of twenty-two she became private secretary to Adolf Hitler and served him for two and a half years, right up to the bitter end. Junge observed the intimate workings of Hitlers administration, she typed correspondence and speeches, including Hitlers public and private last will and testament; she ate her meals and spent evenings with him; and she was close enough to hear the bomb that was intended to assassinate Hitler in the Wolfs Lair, close enough to smell the bitter almond odor of Eva Brauns cyanide pill. In her intimate, detailed memoir, Junge invites readers to experience day-to-day life with the most horrible dictator of the twentieth century.

Hitler's Last Secretary: A Firsthand Account of Life with Hitler

Hitler's Last Secretary
April 20th, 2014
Amazing first-hand account from a young, impressionable woman who lived her daily life with the most recognizably mass murderer the world has ever seen. To listen of how she spent hours, days, weeks, years around this man and his inner-most circle of henchmen and to have the opportunities to be able to read and overhear classified information about what was happening to not only the Jews but millions of other people and to swear that she had no idea what was happening is beyond belief! ! And to think our government agreed is unbelievable and disgusting!!!
