Traudl Junge, nascida Gertraud Humps, foi a última secretária pessoal de Adolf Hitler entre 1942 e 1945, tendo fornecido muita informação documentando a vida do "Führer" para fins de registro histórico.

Em 1942 foi a uma entrevista de emprego na famosa Wolfsschanze , o centro do planejamento militar nazista . Hitler escolheu-a sobretudo por ela ser originária de Munique, sua cidade alemã preferida e em certa forma o seu "lar". Após o fim da guerra, em 1945, foi detida pelos soviéticos e depois pelos americanos, antes de se mudar para a Alemanha Ocidental, onde passaria o resto da vida.

No pós-guerra foi secretária do pai do chefe do governo municipal de Munique Christian Ude.

Foi co-autora, com Melissa Müller, de Bis zur letzten Stunde , publicado no Brasil, pela Ediouro, com o título Até o fim — os últimos dias de Hitler contados por sua secretária, livro em que relata sua vida como secretária do ditador alemão. Em Portugal, foi publicado pela Dinalivro com o título "Até ao Fim: Um Relato Verídico da Secretária de Hitler".

Traudl Junge, faleceu em 11 de fevereiro de 2002 em Munique aos 81 anos. Seu corpo encontra-se sepultado em Nordfriedhof Muenchen, Munique, Baviera na Alemanha.

Citações Traudl Junge

„And at that moment I actually sensed that it was no excuse to be young, and that it would have been possible to find things out.“

— Traudl Junge
Context: Of course, the terrible things I heard from the Nuremberg Trials, about the six million Jews and the people from other races who were killed, were facts that shocked me deeply. But I wasn't able to see the connection with my own past. I was satisfied that I wasn't personally to blame and that I hadn't known about those things. I wasn't aware of the extent. But one day I went past the memorial plaque which had been put up for Sophie Scholl in Franz Josef Strasse, and I saw that she was born the same year as me, and she was executed the same year I started working for Hitler. And at that moment I actually sensed that it was no excuse to be young, and that it would have been possible to find things out. On her emotions on learning she was the same age as a famous martyr of the White Rose anti-Nazi activist group, in Im toten Winkel - Hitlers Sekretärin (2002) [Blind Spot: Hitler's Secretary]

„We should listen to the voice of conscience.“

— Traudl Junge
Context: We should listen to the voice of conscience. It does not take nearly as much courage as one might think to admit to our mistakes and learn from them. Human beings are in this world to learn and to change themselves in learning. Until the Final Hour : Hitler's Last Secretary (2004) edited by Melissa Müller, Foreword, p. 3.

„I admit, I was fascinated by Adolf Hitler. He was a pleasant boss and a fatherly friend. I deliberately ignored all the warning voices inside me and enjoyed the time by his side almost until the bitter end. It wasn't what he said, but the way he said things and how he did things.“

„Now that I've let go of my story, I can let go of my life.“
