Eva Braun, Traudl Junge, and Magda Goebbels mostly talk about Hitler (a man) but occasionally branch out into other topics -- war, death, suicide, and the murder of children.

Traudl Junge talks to her (female) coworker, Eva Braun, and Magda Goebbels (and her female children) about various basic things, like asking the children if they are hungry. She also discusses her coworker's wish to stay behind as she (Traudl Junge) crosses the Russian lines. In the interview footage at the beginning of the film, Traudl Junge is talking to a camera person of unspecified sex (in the scene, anyway) about Sophie Scholl and her own guilt about working for the Nazi government. A lot of the conversations do focus on Hitler, since he was a person of great political import and who was known personally by most of the female characters, but there are also plenty of scenes that feature female characters talking to each other about day-to-day concerns and issues that relate to being on the losing side of the war.
