Harry Potter and the Nazi scandal

JK Rowling has denied claims that the latest Harry Potter book contains anti-semetic messages.

Excerpts from the author’s latest novel leaked to Gusset News last week contained a number of references to the atrocities committed against Jews in World War II.

Harry Potter and the Kibbutz sees characters Harry, Hermoine Grainger and Ronald Weasley travel to Israel on a gap year. The trio find work on a kibbutz, Israel’s answer to communal farming.

In chapter three, Harry confronts a pair of bullies as he weeds a flower bed. As he fumbles for his wand, Ron Weasley shouts “Magic the filthy kikes to the gas chamber, Potter!”

The final chapter sees the trio organising the annual kibbutz ball. The teenagers convert the barn into a giant concentration camp-style shower unit and issue invitations with swastika emblems urging male partygoers to dress as “Nazi youth” and females as “Nazi slutz.”

These excerpts are just two of many that have enraged Jewish groups around the world.

“It’s a travesty – a fun story about wizards ruined by horrific memories of war,” said concentration camp survivor Arthur Goldplatz. “Rowling is obviously trying to be a little edgy but she’s lost touch with the very real atrocities of World War II.”



JK Rowling once said in an interview that she found dressing up as a Nazi arousing.


Rowling, whose grandfather was a Nazi youth member, has denied the claims, claiming the novel's material is "light-hearted japes".

“Harry and his friends are just enjoying light-hearted japes, as all kids do,” she said yesterday. “When I was young I used to dress in my grandfather’s Nazi uniform and bayonet any neighbourhood cats who looked a bit Jewish. So what? Boys will be boys and Harry is no exception.”

Rowling is already hard at work on the next Harry Potter tome. The author, one of the United Kingdom's richest women, won't give much away except to say that the young wizard will put quidditch on the backburner and face some of his toughest ever challenges, including abortion, incest and genocide.

Harry Potter and the Gap Year Kibbutz is out in hardback on May 15 and retails at £15.99.

  5. Sorry J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter was cool but you too should feel the Nazi-related attention for making irresponsible, harmful comments on Pewdiepie who did nothing to deserve it

    1. That's his exact point. He took it out of context to sell a fake story, just like the Wall Street Journal.

  7. I'm just going to read this and take it at face value, because context doesn't matter. J.K. Rowling is definitely a Nazi, confirmed.
