Traudl Junge was one of Adolf Hitler's private secretaries from 1942 until the collapse of Nazi rule. She worked for him at the Führer's headquarters in the Wolfsschanze, in the Berghof at Obersalzberg, on the special train and in Berlin. In 1944, she witnessed the failed Stauffenberg assassination attempt; she experienced the last days of the war and Hitler's suicide in the Führer's bunker in the encircled capital. Traudl Junge was also the one who dictated Hitler's "will." In BLIND SPOT: HITLER'S SECRETARY she spoke publicly about her life, her memories, disturbances and self-reflections. When Traudl Junge tells of the last days before Hitler's suicide in the Führerbunker - a 25-minute monologue without any film editing - the image of emptiness at the center of an inhuman power emerges, almost frightening in its impressiveness and presence.

"I come from the tradition of storytelling, of listening. An exciting character telling something exciting doesn't need an accessory." ANDRÉ HELLER
