Traudl Junge, the final secretary for Adolf Hitler, tells of the Nazi dictator's final days in his Berlin bunker at the end of WWII.
The film takes place in November 1942 and from April 20 to May 8, 1945.
I've got the feeling that I should be angry with this child, this young and oblivious girl. Or that I'm not allowed to forgive her for not seeing the nature of that monster. That she didn't realise what she was doing. And mostly because I've gone so...
The last day of the war, Weidling's speech to the German soldiers is transmitted via car with loud speakers. This car is actually a Soviet car GAZ-63 and its production has begun 3 years later - in 1948. There's Russian text visible on the hood of the car: "Avtozavod imeni Molotova" - Molotov's car factory.
After the final credits there is a statement by the real Traudl Jung about her feelings of guilt and responsibility. In the British Cinema release, this is moved to before the credits.
