Wow, if our English teacher asks us to write a essay on Harry potter, he would probably go nuts seeing these articles. (out of impressiveness I mean)

I printed the articles to read them on my way home in the train especially the Nazi-one – because I’m German and my grandfather nearly was taken to the KZ because he was against it. The mayer said the only reason my grandfather wasn’t taken to the KZ was because he had 4 daughters. Today there are only a few Nazis or people who hate foreigners/dark sĀ“kinned people in Germany compared to other countries.
But also “It’s our choices…” which I think has direct connection with the Nazi-theme seems very interesting. It’s a pitty my English is not so good that I can write that complex essays and I think it took the writers a lot of research. Is it possible to discuss about the essays?

These essays are very well done! Congratulations to everyone who wrote them! I especially thought that The Influence of Nazi Germany was very good. I have also noticed references to the extermination of the Jews throughout the series and the comparisons of Voldemort to Hitler.
