Nurmengard

From UnknowableWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Nurmengard is a prison built by Gellert Grindelwald to keep his opponents locked up. His motto, "For the Greater Good," was carved over the entrance. This is a direct comparison to the Nazi motto "Arbeit Macht Frei", which was also emblazoned upon the entrances of various prison or concentration camps, including Auschwitz, Therensienstadt and Gross-Rosen.

After his duel with Dumbledore, Grindelwald ended up there himself (DH18). Voldemort visited him there to make inquiries regarding the Elder Wand (DH23).
