Post-WWII pop culture has often used comedy, fantasy, and absurdity to not only demystify but try to “figure out” the horrors of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. But in depicting Der Fuhrer as the cartoonishly goofy imaginary friend of a naive German 10-year-old, Jojo Rabbit may actually strike closest to the truth of how, under the bluster and military bravado, Nazism’s foundations were much more absurd, childish, and… well, kind of nerdy (in a bad way) than history wants to remember.
