The Prologue is the first scene from Downfall, which is rarely used in parodies.

In Downfall

It opens with the Constantin Film logo playing. The name of the film appears. Afterward, a clip of old Traudl Junge is shown, where she speaks about how she feels bad about her younger self for failing to realize who Hitler really was, for not being aware of what she got herself into, and for being too enthusiastic about becoming Hitler's secretary. However, her curiosity was more powerful, and now she can never forgive herself.

The scene, just like the epilogue, is from the 2002 Austrian documentary Im toten Winkel - Hitlers Sekretärin (Blind Spot: Hitler's Secretary in English).

In Downfall Parodies

The scene is rarely used in parodies; it is mostly used where Traudl, as an old woman, usually reveals something terrible about Hitler. But also in the mockumentary, The Jodl Head by TheSilverUniverse.
