    Hey Tim

    How are you and your little... friend?

    Right, Dieter..

    You're brother is going to be in the Army soon, right? Don't you ever get scared for him, if he ends up fightting in the war? What would you do if he died? What about your Dad?

    Now that you're involved in the Wizarding world, you're caught into two wars. How does this affect your every day life?

    If you had to pick between the two, which war would you fight for?

    Being a Muggleborn, many Purebloods will look down on you. Doesn't it feel odd for an Aryran like you, to be on the recieving end of predudice. Has this changed you in anyway?

    What is your favourite part of being a wizard? And don't say anything like, 'being able to do magic'.

    Do you ever wish you could share the magical world with your family, or friends? Don't you ever feel lonely?


    It really was.. nice .. to meet you

    Thank you so much, everyone!



    Guten Tag. You people must really like me!

    Right, now for Lexy's questions...

    You're brother is going to be in the Army soon, right? Don't you ever get scared for him, if he ends up fightting in the war? What would you do if he died? What about your Dad?

    Hans isn't in the Wehrmacht. What are you talking about?

    Hans Heydrich does eventually join the Army, but that is several years into the story - the date of this interview is currently set at early December, 1939. Remember, Hans at this time is still fifteen years old, and this drawing of him is several years in the future.

    Now that you're involved in the Wizarding world, you're caught into two wars. How does this affect your every day life?

    Presumably security is tighter, but I wouldn't know since I just started school at Durmstrang and can't compare it to earlier. We get bits of news every day from the papers, but they only really concern the wizarding conflict - the Muggle war isn't given much attention, if at all.

    But no one is too worried about the wizarding war. The Zaubererreich has supporters all around the world, including the nations of our enemies. The French, British, and Italians are just cowards who are afraid of change, and their declaration of war against us is an act of desperation, like trying to stop the tide.

    Note that the alliances of this wizarding war do not perfectly correspond to those of the Muggle war. For instance, wizarding Italy is (initially) opposed to Grindelwald's Germany, though they were allied in the Muggle conflict.

    If you had to pick between the two, which war would you fight for?

    I am only a newcomer to the world of magic. I was born and raised in the world of Muggles, and my loyalties will remain with the Volk, the Reich, and the Führer.

    Being a Muggleborn, many Purebloods will look down on you. Doesn't it feel odd for an Aryran like you, to be on the recieving end of predudice. Has this changed you in anyway?

    Should it? The stuck-up Pureblood wizards are just like the rich capitalists of Weimar who looked down on the working classes before the National Socialist movement set things straight. All Aryans, no matter how rich are poor, are equal - this applies to wizards too.

    When Aryan Pureblood wizards treat me with disdain, I don't let that bother me - those people are just too stupid to comprehend something as basic as the solidarity of the Aryan Race, so I find their ignorance somewhat funny. When not only Hitler but Grindelwald too insists that we are all equal, that just makes them even more laughable.

    But what Grindelwald has gotten wrong is that he insists that all magical people are equal regardless of blood status and race. He doesn't understand that a Slav is just not on the same level of humanity as an Aryan, and are certainly not equal. Granted, a Pureblood Slav is the equal of a Muggle-born Slav, but neither is the equal of any Aryan wizard, or even a Muggle.

    What is your favourite part of being a wizard? And don't say anything like, 'being able to do magic'.

    My favourite part of being a wizard is my power to enact change - magic is a incredibly powerful force that can do wondrous things when mastered. With magic, I can make a far greater contribution to the world than without it.

    Do you ever wish you could share the magical world with your family, or friends? Don't you ever feel lonely?

    Of course I do! I wish that my entire family could be magical, but that is out of the question for my parents and older brother. My younger siblings still might have some hope of becoming witches or wizards, but nothing is certain until their eleventh birthdays.

    However, I do have friends in the wizarding world, so I don't feel very lonely (I think) - I've adjusted pretty well.


    And hello again, weasleywannabe47.

    Why do you like/hate those 2 professors so much?

    Professor Schmidt teaches a fascinating and fun subject. He's tough, engaging, and he really knows what he's doing.

    Professor Simonov on the other hand is a Slav from the East, and a piece of scum. He displays no extraordinary intelligence (after all, what did you expect?) and he just seems to hate me (and my friend Ernst, and others), and the feeling is mutual.

    What's your favorite form of magical transportation?

    Broom - nothing beats flying.

    Though if I had the choice to pick between a broomstick and a Messerschmitt Bf 109, I'd go with the fighter plane. Broomsticks don't come with machine guns!

    When will you be able to try out for the actual Quidditch team?

    What are you talking about? Quidditch is a required subject at Durmstrang, just like Physical Education back in Muggle school.


    And back to "Haiti."

    You don't play pranks???Dieter,you ought to be ashamed!

    There are more important things to do than play pranks on people. Besides, I'd rather do something cleverer and more devastating than a mere practical joke.

    Do you have an archenemy yet?

    Where have you been? Haven't you read my interview?

    Actually, I don't blame you. It's pretty long.

    But yes, I have an archenemy named Aleksandar Todorov, who is a Slav and a complete git. The worst thing is, he's one of my roommates.

    ~ Dieter Heydrich


    Thanks for the questions, Lexy and weasleywannabe47! You've helped propel this little boy to unparalleled infamy!

    How often do you correspond home?

    And here's Haiti!:
    What's your favorite muggle book and text book?

    Well, if it isn't Wes and "Haiti" again!

    By the way, here's a new picture that Tim drew of me. This is what my Durmstrang uniform looks like - just pretend it's red!

    Now, back to your questions.

    Do you not like Alexsander because he's a Slav?

    Of course. Didn't I already say that?

    What grades do tou make?

    Pardon? You really have to improve your spelling and punctuation - it's horrendous!

    Our first grading period hasn't ended yet, so I can't tell you what kind of marks I get at Durmstrang. However, I seem to do pretty well with my essays and practical wand-waving, so they should be good overall.

    Out of your siblings,which one(s) do you think is most likely to be a wizard or a witch?

    No idea, but probably Lena - she's fallen out of too many trees and avoided injury more times than is reasonable, but that could just be because she's lucky. Otherwise, I haven't seen any obvious signs of magic in any of my siblings.

    How often do you correspond home?

    At the beginning of school, I actually wrote a letter every day, but that soon turned to once a week, and then to once every two weeks. It'll probably stay that way, writing home at least every fortnight.


    And hello Haiti, again.

    What's your favorite muggle book and text book?

    I feel obligated to say that my favourite Muggle book is Mein Kampf, but I've only read about the first chapter so I can't really say it's my favourite. My favourite Muggle books would have to be the Sky Captain Otto von Von series - they're a bunch of adventure novels set around 1900 or so in German East Africa, and Captain Otto flies a Zeppelin. I also like reading books about tanks and fighter planes.

    Out of my textbooks, the best is Defensive Magic for Beginners, obviously for Defensive Magic class. It's a really fascinating subject, and an engaging spell book.

    D'you have a muggle pet or a pet at durmstrang?

    No. I'd like to have my own owl though, so I don't have to keep paying money to send letters to people.

    Thanks for the question, weasleywannabe47! This is a welcome break from writing my Denazification research paper!

    Hi again, Dieter.

    You know, you're not mearly as annoying as you're made out to be. You just have different veiws. I decided.


    You're an extreemist, aren't you? But is that just because you were brought up that way? If you had the choice, would you rather not have such tight rules, and just be able to do what you want?

    If Grindlewald is wrong, because he believes that all wizards are equal, then what stops him from being wrong about the fact that Muggleborns and Purebloods? Either he is right or wrong.

    What do you mean, contribut to the world? What changes do you plan on making? Please refrain from mentioning anything about Politics.

    If you're so extreem about Hitler, then why haven't you read Mein Kampf? You ought to be ashamed.

    Okay, imagine this guy you hate so much isn't a Slav. What would your opinion be of him then?

    That's all.

    Thank you

    Hello there, Lexy.

    I'm here to answer your questions, so here I go...

    You know, you're not mearly as annoying as you're made out to be. You just have different veiws. I decided.

    Why did you think I was annoying? Also, what are your views, then?

    You're an extreemist, aren't you? But is that just because you were brought up that way? If you had the choice, would you rather not have such tight rules, and just be able to do what you want?

    Why are you calling me an extremist? If you want extremism, you should try talking to a communist!

    And what's wrong with strict discipline and rules? If you don't have them, you'll just have chaos - look at the Weimar government before the National Socialist Movement set things straight in 1933!

    If Grindlewald is wrong, because he believes that all wizards are equal, then what stops him from being wrong about the fact that Muggleborns and Purebloods? Either he is right or wrong.

    I don't really understand this question - it's not even a complete sentence! What are you trying to ask me?

    What do you mean, contribut to the world? What changes do you plan on making? Please refrain from mentioning anything about Politics.

    A nation or race is only made up of people, and the success or failure of any people rests on the actions of all of its members. Therefore, I want to do my part for the the Reich, and I believe that the ability to do magic will aid me in this endeavor. That's all.

    If you're so extreem about Hitler, then why haven't you read Mein Kampf? You ought to be ashamed.

    You must understand that Mein Kampf is advanced reading - remember, it's over 700 pages! Younger students read and study extracts from the book, but older students like my brother Hans (he's fifteen) read through the entire thing.

    Considering that I have my own copy and have started reading it from the beginning in my free time, I am ahead of other kids my age. So don't you go telling me that I should be ashamed!

    Okay, imagine this guy you hate so much isn't a Slav. What would your opinion be of him then?

    Aleksandar Todorov is still a stuck-up, Pureblood git. He's very obnoxious, rude, and he's one of my roommates. He has a friend named Igor Karkaroff who is just as bad, but at least he has a different room so I don't have to deal with him every night.

    ~ Dieter Heydrich


    I'M HAPPY! I just finished my epic paper on American and Soviet denazification! And I'm celebrating by writing in this thread instead!

    And thanks for the questions, everyone!

    Dieter Heydrich, I am the reporter from the Wizarding Weekly, that is what I am! I came for an interview with you, if you please.

    Dieter, you have achieved... what is it they say? Ah, infamy on the boards. And do not wear that puzzled expression on your face, it is frankly disturbing. If you do not understand something, ask.

    What I was wanting to ask you is that now you are famous, are you not? People are all wanting to talk to you, so many people- you are a celebrity! How is it that you feel?

    These people, they use their brains not to ask you questions! Does it matter in the least whether you have a lady friend? It does not!

    And I am completely in agreement with your views on Slavs, the dirty, primitive, backward race. Have you heard of that joke? "How many Slavs does it take to screw in a light bulb?" Could you perhaps venture a guess as to the answer? And do you have any humour to share with our readers?

    Now, Dieter, I do not have many questions of my own, but there are certain messages and questions from our readers. We had announced last week that we hoped to derive an interview with you, and ah, the response!

    In the first, we have a seventeen year old witch by the name of Alizza Derkins:

    DDDDDDDDDDIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTT TTTTTEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRR!!!!!

    My cookie crumb, my honey bun, my sugar plum! I LOOOOVVVEEE YOOOOUUUU!

    Will you marry me? I'll wait for you to grow up!

    Dieterrrr I love you! I've read every interview of yours!
    Maybe we should go to some less- what do they call it in the English language?- ah, less disturbing messages and questions?

    Seems promising, this one. Thomas Bentley, seventy two years of age. He says this:

    Master Dieter Heydrich, may I suggest the Hoffman Asylum, it is one of the best of it's kind in Deutschland, I presume?

    I was assuming that you would need an asylum some day, looking at your thought process and the things you say- I am sure all psychologists would agree. I would suggest remedial help right now, I know a certain Herr Svennsonn, a prominent psychologist, may I suggest you to him?

    It is not too late, Dieter Heydrich. You may yet be able to cure yourself of whatever mental afflection you are unfortunate enough to possess.
    That is not very nice! This is a warning I would like to impart to all of our readers: there is no necessity to try to- what is that word? porvoke?- no, provoke those whom we are interviewing. Please, it is not nice.

    We have time for one more, I think? Let us hope for a good message. This one looks nice, it does. It is from someone called BB- is that a name? It is two letters! It is these kind of things that are a stain on names. Names are things of beauty, and they shoudl remain that way! Dieter- is that not such a wonderful name! Why shorten it to Die-man or DieDie or some other confounded shortening?

    But my tongue is running away, let us get back to the message. It is from a BB, who says he is a hundred and one years old. I do not believe it!

    Dieter, I can come over there and ask you questions myself.

    Be afraid. Be very afraid.
    Oh, this is just too terrible! I refuse to conduct this interview on the grounds that poor Dieter is being sent terrible messages! Why is it that our readers are so terrible in their conduct?

    Dieter, I am deeply apologetic. I am sorry that you have been troubled for so long with no necessity, I shall return at a later date, after what is the word again?- berating our readers.

    My apologies once more, Dieter.

    Thank you for your time. When I will be coming back for the re-interview, I shall inform you before, is that all right?

    ETA~ Oh no, don't tell me I've killed this thread! o.O

    Don't worry BB, nobody has killed this thread just yet. I'm pretty sure the limit is... actually I have no idea what the post limit for any thread is! I suppose we'll just find out whenever it happens, then.

    Now, back to the star of the thread...



    Hallo, reporter person!

    Wow! An actual reporter from a magazine! This is exciting!

    Dieter, you have achieved... what is it they say? Ah, infamy on the boards. And do not wear that puzzled expression on your face, it is frankly disturbing. If you do not understand something, ask.

    Why do you say that I've become infamous on the boards? Yes, I am asking you!

    And why do you say I look disturbing?

    What I was wanting to ask you is that now you are famous, are you not? People are all wanting to talk to you, so many people- you are a celebrity! How is it that you feel?

    Never thought of myself as a celebrity - does that mean people are going to want my autograph? I suddenly feel really important right now, like some sort of ambassador for the Reich.

    And I am completely in agreement with your views on Slavs, the dirty, primitive, backward race. Have you heard of that joke? "How many Slavs does it take to screw in a light bulb?" Could you perhaps venture a guess as to the answer? And do you have any humour to share with our readers?

    So, how many Slavs does it take to screw in a light bulb? EASY! It's Five. One to hold the light bulb while the other Four rotate the ladder!


    Here's another Slav joke. There are two Slavs, one on opposite sides of a river. One calls out to the other, "Hey Ivan! How do you get to the other side?"

    The other Slav replies, "What a silly question, Grigor! You're ON the other side!"


    I have some more, but I don't want to use them all at once!

    Now, Dieter, I do not have many questions of my own, but there are certain messages and questions from our readers. We had announced last week that we hoped to derive an interview with you, and ah, the response!

    Wow! I have fan mail?

    Let's see...

    EEUUGGHHHHWWW! This girl is SEVENTEEN?

    Well, why don't you come over and ask me your questions, then? You're the one who's afraid.

    Interesting "fan" mail, I say!

    Thank you for your time. When I will be coming back for the re-interview, I shall inform you before, is that all right?

    No problem. Look forward to it, I think.

    Tim's Random Propaganda Interlude, Part II


    Greetings! Here's another fascinating installment of mine on propaganda. The first interlude was a summary of the 1943 propaganda film, Titanic, which you can read here.

    But for this interlude, I'd like to do something different. How about watching some cartoons! I'll be writing an in-depth analysis of each in a later post, but I'd like to hear your comments on these cartoons first.

    This one is American (from 1943), by the Walt Disney Company, and is arguably the most famous propaganda cartoon of the Second World War. Yes, this is a link to a YouTube video.

    Der Fuehrer's Face

    And here are some Soviet ones from 1941:

    Assorted Soviet Cartoons

    After watching each cartoon, identify the message each is trying to send. Also consider how these cartoons portray the German enemy - on a related note, how do the Americans' and Soviets' war aims differ judging by what you see?

    And of course, I can't leave out some Nazi cartoons, can I?

    Weird Nazi Cartoon

    This is one of the weirder cartoons I've seen, but ignoring that, what is its message, and who is the intended audience? Why are the American bomber crews depicted as popular cartoon characters while everyone else is human?

    Sorry that this next one has no subtitles, but I think it's so blatant that it doesn't need any!

    Another Nazi Cartoon

    Message is pretty easy to figure out...

    Anyway, I'd love to hear what you think of these assorted Allied and Nazi propaganda cartoons! I'll let you know my take on them in a few posts.

    Boy, that brings back memories! I haven't seen Der Fuehrer's Face in years.

    (No, I didn't see it when it was first released! I'm not that old. )

    I think the contrast between the propaganda of the three nations is very interesting. The American cartoon relies primarily on mockery and satire to deliver its message. (Along with some racial stereotypes that wouldn't pass muster today.)

    The Nazi cartoons are a little more subtle (relatively speaking), in that their message isn't explicitly stated: it relies on visual images, and lets the viewer draw his or her own conclusions. (Okay, they're not that subtle, but as propaganda cartoons, they're quite effective: a child can get the point without the narrator actually saying who the bad guys are and why.)

    The Soviet cartoons, on the other hand, are just saber-rattling: "Death to Fascists and Capitalists!" Nothing subtle there at all. Considering how badly the USSR fared through most of the war, they needed that kind of pumped-up morale boosting message.

    Cool finds. The link to the site that posted that first Nazi cartoon, though, is really disturbing.

    The wizarding world doesn't have cartoons, but I wonder if they wouldn't have something equivalent to the old radio serials, on the Wizard Wireless, with popular characters who could be used to deliver propaganda messages?
