I'm a huge History buff, so this college semester I am taking a class about the Holocaust. Yesterday we're in this huge discussion about how Hitler wanted everyone to be "pure-blood" and this guy in the back pop's up and says how it reminded him of the Slytherin's in the Harry Potter series and how they're always talking about the pure-bloods being the superior wizards. I thought this was very interesting (since I'm a Harry Potter buff as well) and took it to the "next level". I now have a whole "Theory" type connection thing going on...I think it's kind of neat (but freaky too) and I thought I'd share..
NOTE: This is in now way stating the Slytherin's are bad people, Hufflepuffs weak, or Gryffindor's and Ravenclaw's the "superior houses". This is just a theory. If for some uncanny reason it causes drama, I'll delete it!
Hitler was the leader of the Nazi's and main cause for WWII right? but in the HP world he'd be Voldermort. Then, you've got his minions aka Nazi party and death eaters
Hitler was big on getting the Youth involved...that's were Slythrin comes in....they're the "youth Nazi's"
Nazi's picked on Jews (mainly, there were others) Jew have been harassed through out time, Hufflepuffs always seem to be the one's who are picked on. Therefore I've placed Hufflepuffs as the target of the prosecution.
Then you've got the Ravenclaws, who are like Europe (the smart people always seem to come from Europe) They're trying to fight off the Slytherins but arn't that great at it.
Then, towards the end of the war, Voldermort picks on little Harry (Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor) and after a while the USA (Gryffindor) is angry and decide to join in the war. We all know that the Allies won (saved the Jews) and Hitler dies. But we don't 'know how the Series will end. For now I'll just assume that Gryffindor and Ravencalw win (Saving Hufflepuff) and Voldermort dies.
I just thought this was kind of freaky and interesting and thought I'd share!
