This is what SF/Arts curator Sura Wood had to say about 36th SF Jewish Film Festival :

This excellent fest wraps up its final week with “A German Life,” a first person documentary about Brunhilde Pomsel who, from 1942 until the end of WWII, was the secretary of Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s rabidly anti-Semitic Nazi Minister of Propaganda. Pomsel describes Goebbels as a narcissist not prone to small talk. At the age of 104, and one of the last eyewitnesses to the evil day-to-day machinations of the Third Reich, she has quite a tale to tell.
