After reading Oliver Twist, I note that Fagin is referred to as 'The Jew' and is portrayed quite negatively, especially in his appearance. Nevertheless, there is a certain feature of Fagin that we, as the reader, are positioned to like about him - he's not completely bad like Bill Sikes. Hence, my question is how did the Nazis view (by view, I mean was it banned, or strongly recommended etc.) the text Oliver Twist?
The Nazis certainly approved of Oliver Twist. As early as 1923 the principal Nazi newspaper Völkischer Beobachter printed a German translation of the book in instalments.
