Melita Maschmann (1918–2010) was a German memoirist.[1] She achieved renown with her 1963 book Fazit: Kein Rechtfertigungsversuch (lit: "Account Rendered: No Attempt at Justification") which recounted her years as a member of the Hitler Youth and a propagandist for the Nazi machine.

The book was translated into English by Geoffrey Strachan as Account Rendered: A Dossier on my Former Self.

Maschmann never married and had no children. For the last ten years of her life, she suffered from Alzheimers.[2] Maschmann's life was portrayed in the documentary Teenage (2013) where she was played by Ivy Blackshire.[3]
