This chapter suggests that the portrayals of vampires by George Sylvester Viereck and Hanns Heinz Ewers provide some insight into how they could support Adolf Hitler's brutal regime. In House of the Vampire, Viereck's charismatic vampire, Reginald Clarke, sucks the creativity and even the sanity from his victims, but this parasitism allows him to create powerful and immortal works of genius. Ewers's Vampir portrays vampirism as serving the cause of German nationalism: Frank Braun's blood drinking propels him to oratorical heights for his country. Viereck's support of Hitler and National Socialism despite its evils forever shattered any aspirations he had to join the vampire Clarke's pantheon of great men. In Vampir, Jews can either be bloodthirsty, vampiric murderers or sacrificial victims. In Vampir, identity is consistently expressed through the language of blood and through a blood mythology that links Germans and Jews.
