The extraordinary life and times of Paul Schmidt, Hitler's interpreter for ten dramatic years.
A remarkable linguist, Dr Paul Schmidt was present at all the Fuhrer's meetings with foreign statesmen, from Lloyd George to Molotov. In the 10 years before Hitler came to power, he was the senior interpreter at the German Foreign Office and was a member of the German delegation received into the League of Nations in 1926. He thus witnessed at close hand the rise and fall of a great nation, from the hopes of Geneva to the final degradation of the Nuremberg war crimes trials.
In tonight's documentary Dr Paul Schmidt talks to Donald McLachlan, former editor of the Sunday Telegraph and a foreign correspondent in Germany in the 1930s.
