Job Reference From Hitler: Good or Bad?

Imagine that it's 1952, and you're hiring a maid. You like Rosa Mitterer's resume, and ask for references. She provides a reference letter from Adolf Hitler saying that she was a great worker and very reliable, and he definitely recommends her to any potential employer.

Does the Hitler reference help or hurt her job application?

Hitler's Maid Says He Was a 'Great Boss'
Thursday, December 04, 2008

E-Mail Print Share:

She may be the only person in the world to remember him fondly, but a woman who worked as a maid for Adolf Hitler in the '30s says he was "a great boss," the Daily Mail reports.

"He was a charming man, someone who was only ever nice to me, a great boss to work for," Rosa Mitterer, 91, told the Mail of the murderous dictator. "You can say what you like, but he was a good man to us."

Mitterer, who worked at Hitler's Bavarian mountain retreat alongside her sister Anni before the start of World War II, said she only knew him as a kind employer.

"I remember so clearly the first day I spoke to him in the kitchen," Mitterer told the Daily Mail. "I said I was Anni's sister and that made him smile, because Anni was his favorite. I only ever knew Hitler as a kindly man who was good to me."

Mitterer's duties included sorting thousands of letters sent to the home, and feeding the dogs. Hitler also ordered Mitterer and her sister to attend church on a regular basis.

"I didn't have to be a Nazi party member or anything," Mitterer told the Mail. "After a while I relaxed a bit. Apparently it was Hitler's orders that Anni and I be taken to church every Sunday because he thought this would be 'good for us.'"

After the war, Mitterer was forced to confront the reality of the Holocaust and the reality of the man she worked for voluntarily.

"That he had ordered such terrible things, I just couldn't believe it," Mitterer told the Daily Mail.

It depends on your opinion of the Weekly World News' journalism team.

Even if he was dead, though, it would've been polite for him to have written her a reference letter while he was in the bunker.

Sorting mail and feeding the dogs? Those are crazy skillz right there.

I thought she could at least iron knife-sharp trouser creases and polish jackboots.

Based on the results thus far, it seems like it would be in the best interests of an unethical person to fake a reference letter from Hitler. It's not like he's around to refute it.


"To whom it may concern: Rain Man handled our surveys of the Waffen SS and was so good that we eventually expanded the contract to include the Luftwaffe and the Hitler Youth. We found his work to be very timely and accurate."

Hmm. Very impressive that Hitler seemed pleased with your work. I imagine that he's not easy to please. I have a project that I would like you to help on. Would you be able to generate a quote so that I can justify the price of another firm?

I really need to rent that movie. I've seen that one scene with geeked up subtitles about 15 times, but never correctly.
