Secretary to Goebbels

This is the place to discuss the past, its study, and those who study it. Discussion about events that happened less than twenty years ago should go go in Politics instead.

Secretary to Goebbels

I imagine that postwar life would have been difficult for her, but the we-didn't-know-anything defence just doesn't wash. Even if one knew nothing about the death camps, how about the Nuremberg laws and Kristallnacht?

From the final paragraph in the link above---
She said that she had come to believe that “God doesn’t exist, but the devil certainly does...”
Somewhat off topic:
In my youth, every few years I would hear on the radio about another Japanese WWII soldier being found alive, living in isolation on some Pacific Island. Does anybody know if there is a book with accounts of the lives of one or more of those men?

I don't know any specific books, but there were a few cases of that up into the Seventies. One of them refused to let go until they flew in his old CO to tell him.
I have a blog about nineteenth century America. It's theoretically educational!

It's interesting DMB that it's mainly seen as a male regime with Hitler
