The Goebbels children are asleep (more accurately under the influence of the drugs). Magda Goebbels reenters their room with Joseph Goebbels waiting outside. She turns on the light, takes out cyanide pills from her pocket and one by one crushes a cyanide pill in each of their mouths, covering their heads with their blankets, leaving their feet exposed.
After crushing the pill into Helga's mouth, Magda kisses her forehead. She then leaves the room where she then slumps outside in despair. Joseph limps towards her to try and console her, but she immediately gets up and walks away.
Rochus Misch rises from his seat and watches as Magda and later Joseph walks towards Goebbels' bunker office (adjacent to Misch's post), where she sits at a table, picks up a deck of cards and proceeds to shuffle and split them seeming almost emotionless, all the while Joseph looks on. Misch sits back down.
In Downfall Parodies
The scene is almost never used by Untergangers due to its gruesome nature and lack of dialogue.
WonkyTonkBotty first used the scene, in a parody where Magda kills her children after learning that her kids like Justin Bieber. The video has a warning message at the beginning, telling the viewers about the content of the video.
