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.
Friends (and by that I mean political allies):

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)
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
