Summary
Loosely based on her actual first-hand account, depicts the final ten days of Nazi Germany as seen through the eyes of Hitler's then-secretary Gertraud (Traudl) Junge. Joining Hitler and his inner circle at their bunker in Berlin, she witnesses the collapse of Hitler's plans for the Third Reich. As the Russian army takes the city, the dissipation, horrific beliefs, and merciless logic of Hitler's philosophy and followers becomes ever more apparent and visceral
