In the dead of a November night in 1942, a group of young women are escorted by SS officers through the woods to Wolf’s Lair, Hitler’s headquarters in Eastern Prussia. They are candidates for the post of personal secretary to the Fuehrer. Among them is 22-yearold Traudl Junge (ALEXANDRA MARIA LARA) a fresh-faced girl from Munich. The women are ushered into the waiting room outside Hitler’s private office, each eager to make a good impression. The door to the office opens, and Adolf Hitler (BRUNO GANZ) enters. The women rise to their feet, and the Fuehrer greets them, one by one, with a handshake and an inquiry as to where they hail from. Traudl is chosen for the job and she is overcome with joy at the thought of serving beside her Fuehrer.
