About this item

Brunhilde Pomsel described herself as an 'apolitical girl' and a 'figure on the margins', but, employed as a stenographer during the Second World War, she worked closely with one of the worst criminals in world history: ****** Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels. She was one of the oldest surviving eyewitnesses to the internal workings of the ****** power apparatus until her death in 2017.

Her biography, however, not only provides us with extraordinary new insight into a seminal moment of history. Her life, mirroring all the major breaks and continuities of the 20th century, also illustrates how far-right politics, authoritarian regimes and dictatorships can rise and what part political apathy and passivity of the masses can contribute to democracy's erosion.

Compelling and unnerving, The Work I Did forces us to ask how we could have acted in such a situation and leads to the disturbing and enduring question: how reliable is our own moral compass?
