    2. Voldemort is depicted as the archenemy of Harry Potter. When Voldemort is making his comeback, there is an ominous atmosphere dominating the wizarding and Muggle world. As I read through the books I cannot help comparing Voldemort with Adolf Hitler and the dark magic rule with Nazism; both rulers' obsessions are the ultimate power and blood purity, despite being "half blood". The Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore's Army and Potterwatch are the counterparts of various resistance movements under Nazism.

I think there may be more parallels like this in the Fantastic Beasts series of films and the rise of Grindelwald.
