Hitler's Secretary



by Peter Malone,11-11-2003

Blind Spot - Hitler's Secretary

Director: Amdre Heller, Othmar Schmiderer
Cast: Traudl Junge
Duration: 90 minutes

If you were told that you were to spend the next ninety minutes watching a film that was all interview, a focus on a talking head without any visual relief except the interviewee's change of clothes and, sometimes, watching herself on a video monitor, you might well beg out of the experience. But, you would be mistaken. This is an absorbing documentary, an interview with a woman who brings to life the last years of the Third Reich.

Traudl Junge was one of Hitler's private secretaries from 1942. He dictated his last will and testament to her. On the whole, she did not see much of Hitler until she was in the Bunker in the final days, although she was interviewed by him for the job.

Her description of those times becomes increasingly vivid and detailed as she warms to her subject (although it is a relief to hear her say at various times that she does not remember some things). The interview is at its most powerful in her recollections of the very last days, an eyewitness to Hitler's retreat into another world while still blaming the German people for not responding to his vision and their mission, especially to rid Europe of the Jews.

The important aspect of the inverviews is Frau Junge's continually asking herself why and how as a twenty year old, she could have been so unquestioningly caught up in Third Reich propaganda, could have been charmed by Hitler's personality and not asked herself what was really going on. For decades, she did not give interviews but, finally, she was persuaded to talk to film-maker, Andre Heller, in 2001. Her testimony is honest, self-condemnatory, puzzled at herself as a young girl - and finding some small way to atone and to forgive herself. It is recording of interviews like this that remind us how important it is to have visual records for the future.

Sadly, Frau Junge died of cancer the morning after the film was screened at the Berlin Film Festival in February, 2002, at the age of 81.

 



我是希特勒的秘書

導演:安德魯西勒、奧特瑪舒密德爾
演員:特奧德兒容格
片長:90分鐘

假若你發現須花上九十分鐘看著一個全是訪問片段的電影,沒有任何視覺修飾,受訪者只是偶爾會轉換衣飾,間中面對鏡頭,你或許不希望欣賞這類電影。然而,你弄錯了,這是一齣極吸引的紀錄片,本片訪問了一位經歷過第三帝國末落日子的女性。

一九四二年特奧德兒容格開始擔任希特勒其中一名私人秘書,希特勒臨終前向她口述自己最後的願望。在整段日子裡,她與希特勒見面的數次不多,縱然她見工時由希特勒親自接見,惟到了最後在燃料庫的日子,她才得以更加了解他。

當她談到感興趣的話題時,往往能生動及仔細地憶述事件(雖然我們會慶幸她記不起某些東西)。她對昔日跟隨希特勒工作的最後那段日子的回憶成了訪問的高潮:她見證了希特勒由風光到末落,他埋怨德國人民沒有回應自己的遠見及使命,特別是殲滅歐洲的猶太人。

在訪問中,特奧德兒容格不斷問自己:當年只得二十歲的她為什麼可以毫不猶疑地相信第三帝國所宣傳的,或許是被希特勒的個性迷住了,最重要是而並非探究當中所發生的事。她在過去幾十年一直拒絕接受訪問,到了二零零一年,她終於被電影製作人安德魯西勒說服。她的見證真誠,充滿自我譴責,對自己年輕時感到困惑,尋找贖罪及原諒自己的方法。這類錄映訪問提醒我們,保存視像紀錄是非常重要的。

很不幸,特奧德兒容格在本片於二零零二年柏林影展公映後的一個早上因癌病辭世,享年八十一歲。
