Cast overview:


Traudl Junge was Adolf Hitler's private secretary, from Autumn 1942 until the collapse of the Nazi regime. She worked for him at the Wolfsschanze in Obersalzberg, on his private train and, finally, in his bunker in the besieged capital. It was Traudl Junge to whom Hitler dictated his final testament. In her first ever on-camera interview, 81-year-old Junge talks about her unique life. In the spring of 2001, Andre Heller succeeded in convincing Traudl Junge how valuable it is to record her unique memories. Fifty-six years after the end of the Second World War, an important eyewitness reveals her experiences to us. What she saw and heard turned her into an furious opponent of National Socialism; an opponent, moreover, who is still painfully aware and seems incapable of forgiving the young girl she once was--for her naivete, ignorance, and her liking for Hitler. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Traudl Junge: And I think it's also the case that if you value and respect someone you don't really want to destroy the image of that person... you don't want to know, in fact if disaster lies beyond the facade.

Documentary consisting of interviews with an 80 year-old woman, Traudl Junge, nee Hump, who in her early twenties served as Hitler's personal secretary in his Berlin bunker, ~1942-44. Oral history, up-close and personal, from the casual perspective of an ordinary person, ordinary life--the "banality of evil." First, she deals with personal specifics: who she was, why and how she took the job, and, above all, personal guilt. The lack of the latter explains the film's title, "blind spot." Second, she deals with day-to-day life with The Terrible One, crafting a personal portrait of the man, of his detachment and asexuality, his lack of emotion and concern for others, his relation with women in general, Eva Braun in particular. The failed assissination attempt on Hitler's life and its profound effect on him is described. Third, the last quarter to third of the film focuses on the last 10-14 days of the Third Reich, an eerie, surreal time when Hitler married Braun and cyanide pills were passed out. In order to make sure that he hadn't been betrayed and the pills were genuine, Hitler tested one on the dog, Blondie, he had doted on. The narrator recalls the pungent odor of bitter almonds in the room with the dead animal. Fascinating, chilling, ultimately heart-breaking. Ps. The woman in question never revealed her story until this film; she lived anonymously all her life. She died of cancer the day it premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in 2002.
