  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Just how antisemitic is Lindbergh? We do see him start giving Bengelsdorf the cold shoulder and not lifting a finger to put a stop to anti-Jewish violence, but he never directly speaks against Jews after his initial campaign speeches (the views in which Bengelsdorf claims to have talked him out of). And while his administration did descend into outright persecution in the end, that happened after he had disappeared.

How well does it match the trope?
