Anonymous said: Who did Goebbels get along with and not get along with in the NSDAP? What relationships changed over time? Thanks for any insight you can provide.

UGH this is SUCH a good question and it would take me SO long to even give an incomplete, inaccurate answer that I’m just going to say “fuck it” and give a completely terrible, half-assed one. Assume for the sake of simplicity that this stands for Night of the Long Knives onward; this is the guy who called Hitler a “petite bourgeois” in the beginning so assume that he hated everyone at some point.

Enemies: 

Himmler

Heydrich

Roehm

Bormann

Frenemies:

Goering

Magda

Friends (and by that I mean political allies):

Speer

fucking nobody I’M N OT HERE TO mAKE FRIENDS (Boulevard of Broken Dreams begins to play in background)

BFF

Hitler

Anonymous said: What was Goebbels shoe size? :) and was he 1.65m?

As far as I know, all current numbers re: Goebbels’ height, shoe size, weight, etc. are pretty much pure speculation and estimation. It’s likely that an accurate number was never written down, unfortunately—though perhaps by some miracle a doctor’s form or something has survived, but I’ve never seen evidence of it on the internet or elsewhere.

blackbluebirds said: Would you happen to know what type of music/artists/songs Dr.Goebbels liked? I'm having trouble finding anything about this. Thank you.

No idea, unfortunately. I remember reading once that he had more “liberal” (read: degenerate) tastes than the Fuehrer; jazz and the like. I don’t know exactly how true that is though.

Anonymous said: What kind of parents were Joseph and Goebbels to their children, other than murdering them in their sleep of course?

As far as I know, they were great parents. Joseph and Magda held a huge amount of affection towards their children (as all parents should), and the kids always seem genuinely happy in home films, etc. It helps that Goebbels got them a pony. Of course, we’ll probably never know the most minute details of the Goebbels family’s home life, but I think it was (more or less) a very loving family.

Anonymous said: Did Goebbels get along with his parents?

Fairly well, yeah. If I remember there were some rough patches in his 20s re: losing faith in Catholicism, choosing the life of a “starving artist/poet” instead of sucking it up and working as a banker (read: not wanting to be a wage slave), etc.

I can’t imagine what was going on there: Hitler and Goebbels have such faces like if they had just seen a swastika-shaped UFO, Magda is chic as ever and that unknown stuff at the table looks very strange (so as that guy, who is reading smth very attentively)

*psst*
they’re gettin’ married
they have funny faces because it’s a pretty big moment in their lives
Hitler is the witness/best man
Magda looks chic because she dressed up for her wedding
the unknown stuff is some decorative flowers for the ceremony
the guy is a gov. official and is reading through the marriage papers they all have to sign
~*~mystery solved~*~ (i vanish into the night)
