Brunhilde Pomsel, the former personal secretary of Joseph Goebbels, is still alive at the age of 105, and she insists that she knew nothing about the Holocaust when it was happening.

You can read all about it here:

The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote

The personal secretary of Joseph Goebbels has opened up about her life working for Adolf Hitler’s infamous minister of propaganda — and insists the mass extermination of Jews was carefully hidden from her and her co-workers.

“I know no one ever believes us nowadays — everyone thinks we knew everything. We knew nothing, it was all kept well secret,” Brunhilde Pomsel, now 105, says in an interview with The Guardian.

Instead, Pomsel remembers the niceties of the man history knows as a rabid anti-Semite [Joseph Goebbels] who strongly supported the Holocaust and would poison his six children when the Nazi war machine collapsed in 1945.

End quote

Apparently, Pomsel now believes that the Holocaust happened, but it was kept secret. Will she now be put on trial, at the age of 105, because she should have made it her business to know about the Holocaust and she should have done something to save the Jews?
