A GERMAN LIFE
By Christopher Hampton (UK), based on the life and testimony of Brunhilde Pomsels (DE)
English original text
Documentary monologue based on real interviews with Brunhilde Pomsel who in 2016 (at the age of 105) revealed her story: of how she worked as a secretary in Berlin during the 1930-40s – at first, for a Jewish insurance broker, then for the German Broadcasting Corporation and finally for Joseph Goebbels. The text is a condensed account of her life and stories about being German – before, during and after WWII –, about the Nazis and ordinary people. A challenging material for an elderly actress.
