Latest hand-picked WWII news.

Adolf Hitler`s secretary Traudl Junge lived in Australia   (Article no longer available from the original source)
ADOLF Hitler`s devoted secretary, who spent the final days of the Third Reich huddled with the Fuhrer in his Berlin bunker, quietly lived in Australia for several years in the 1970s and 80s after she was earlier refused permanent residency for being a Nazi sympathiser.

Traudl Junge - Secretary who wrote Adolf Hitler`s last will and testament in the bunker
Traudl Junge (born Gertraud Humps in Munich in 1920) worked as a secretary to Adolf Hitler 1943-1945. She was 22 when Hitler selected her to become his fourth, and youngest, secretary from a shortlist of 9 - hundreds of hopeful young women had applied. "After Stalingrad... We all tried to distract him, with talk about films, or gossip, anything that would take his mind off the war." She described Hitler as "very paternal", adding: "I have never understood the effect he had on all of us. Sometimes, when he went off somewhere without us, it was almost as if the air around us had become deficient... some essential element was missing... There was a vacuum."

Kind and paternal man who passionately loved his dog
Adolf Hitler, one of the greatest mass murderers in history, is remembered by his secretary Traudl Junge as a kind and paternal man who ate little aside from mashed potato and passionately loved his dog. Hitler`s greatest pleasure was when his sheepdog Blondie would jump a few centimetres higher than the last time, and he would say that going out with his dog was the most relaxing thing he could do.

Hitler`s secretary Traudl Junge tells of Hitler, the friendly boss
Hitler`s former secretary has given an intimate account of her "easy going" and "friendly" boss. Traudl Junge who typed Hitler`s last will and testament in his Berlin bunker tells of the fascination she felt for the Nazi leader she loved working for in a book entitled To the Last Hour. It is one of the most vivid - and probably the last - first-hand accounts of his final hours from a member of his inner circle. "I have to say I was fascinated by Adolf Hitler and he was a pleasant boss and a fatherly friend," she writes. Hitler asked Ms Junge: "How are you my child? Have you had some rest? I want to dictate something." It was his final will and testament.
