    According to the interview that JK Rowling gave to Meredith Viera (where young people got to ask questions, and one bright person asked a similar question to yours) the idea of ethnic cleansing certainly is a political metaphor, but she did not "sit down to recreate Nazi Germany" and there are "conscious overtones of Nazi Germany", there are also associations with other political situations in the world today.

    I don't know, when I see "Nurmengard" I think of Asgard, Midgard, etc. from Norse mythology. "Gard" in this sense means "realm" or "enclosure".

    All I can find for "Nurmen", though, is a stadium in Finland.

    Well you have a point a read this thing in an entertainment magazine that i picked up because it had some child reading the book (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) on it and it said (oh great now i have to find it) (okay here it is) : "We read everything through the prism of what has and is happening around us, Voldemort is Osama. Azkaban is Gitmo. Death Eaters are al-Qaeda sleeper cells.
