Traudl Junge fue la secretaria personal de Hitler entre diciembre de 1942 y su suicidio en el búnker el 30 de abril de a945. Ella estaba presente cuando el 20 de julio de 1944 se perpetró el atentado contra él, y fue a ella a quien Hitler dictó su testamento político y privado. En muy poco tiempo, la sencilla muchacha muniquesa que quería ser bailarina fue a parar al centro del poder nacionalsocialista.

nada más acabar la guerra, Traudl Junge puso por escrito sus vivencias en el búnker del Führer y en el Berghof, pero el manuscrito, un valiosísimo documento histórico, no se había publicado hasta ahora. En este libro, Melissa Müller enmarca biográficamente el texto de Traudl Junge a través de una introducción biográfica y un amplio epílogo basado en conversaciones con ella. Responde así a la pregunta de cómo pudo suceder que aquella joven ingenua ocupara un lugar junto al hombre que destruyó la vida de millones de personas en el momento en que otra joven muniquesa, Sophie Scholl, ya había comprendido las dimensiones del crimen de Hitler y había sido asesinada por oponerse al régimen.

Además, Melissa Müller explica cómo veía Traudl Junge su pasado, que acompaña a su vida como una sombra, y describe su horror al reconocer su ingenuidad y su culpa.---------------------In 1942 Germany, Traudl Junge was a young woman with dreams of becoming a ballerina like her sister, when she was offered the chance of a lifetime. At the age of twenty-two she became private secretary to Adolf Hilter, and she served him for two and a half years, right up to the bitter end. Her memoir, which she wrote not long after the war when the memories were still fresh, offers a unique and chilling glimpse of the human face of this man known to posterity as a monster.

As part of the secretarial pool, Junge observed the intimate workings of Hitlers administration. She traveled back and forth with him between the Wolfs Lair in eastern Prussia and Berchtesgaden in the Bavarian Alps, and finally to the bunker in Berlin. She typed correspondence and speeches, including Hitlers public and private last will and testament. She and the other secretaries ate their meals and spent evenings with him, as well as with Eva Braun and high-ranking Nazi officials.

She was close enough to hear the bomb that was intended to assassinate Hitler in the Wolfs Lair. She heard the shot with which Hitler ended his life, and smelled the bitter almond odor of Eva Brauns cyanide pill. But while Junge was witness to crucial events in Hitlers last years, it is her precise, detailed observations of the outwardly normal, almost mundane quality of day-to-day life with Hitler that prove most disturbing in her memoir. In this she confirms once again - as did Victor Klemperer in his diary I Will Bear Witness - what Hannah Arendt has called the banality of evil.
