Don't forget:

Germany had high inflation, and great powerty in 1930es. One egg cost 3.000.000.000 German Marks (then currency). Then came National Socialistic party, and changed all. Thay stopped poverty, made jobs for people, raised again German national pride, etc... It is normal for German artist, or any other citizen, to trust government who made better life. And not to ask question what is price of that better life. We know what was the price, but I don't think many Germans asked that question in those times...

I don't defend her, but we must know in what situation Germany and German people were then to understand why Leni did what she did.

I mean: How many Spanish and Portugese thought what happens with native Americans when they followed Columbo to America, how many British thought what was going on with Aborigins during British colonisation of Australia, how many good Christians thought what was going on with non Christians when misionars go to America, Asia, Africa, etc...

Why should Leni question what her government do if that government get her and her nation up from powerty an misery. And when such government offered her job, she had no reason to reject it...

Human nature, you know...
