Frieda Zychski and her husband came to Hermann Göring's country house on Obersalzberg in 1937 as caretakers.

In this interview from 1991, the former housekeeper impressively reports for the first time about life in the house of the Reich Minister.
In 1938, the house was enlarged because Göring's family moved from Berlin to Obersalzberg.
In the course of the renovation work, an air raid shelter was also built under the house.
In this context, disagreements arose with Reichsleiter Martin Bormann, which were to come to a head until the end of the war.
Zychski reports on the daily routine in Göring's country house, as well as on the bombing of Obersalzberg and the arrest of the Reichsmarschall due to an intrigue by Bormann.
Göring was deported to Austria for security reasons and was captured by U.S. troops a short time later.
On May 1, 1945 Zychski and her family returned to the bombed-out Obersalzberg and took up quarters in the appartment of former Luftwaffe Adjutant General Bodenschatz in Göring's adjutant's office.
In these rooms, where this Interview was recorded, time seems to have stood still since 1945. Besides the rooms themselves, most of the furnishings was still from that time.
