The Nazis were a political party in Germany (known in full as the National Socialist German Workers' Party), which arose in the aftermath of World War I, and came to power under Adolf Hitler in 1933.
They turned Germany into a ruthless totalitarian dictatorship, and led it both into its drive for dominating Europe in World War II and the effort to destroy the Jews, Roma, homosexuals, cripples, and others through the Holocaust, until their overthrow in 1945. Griff and Goliath joined the Royal Air Force in defending London from them during the Battle of Britain in 1940. ("M.I.A.")
In "Religious Studies 101: A Handful of Thorns," Demona smuggles the shaft of the Spear of Destiny to Manhattan. She claims it was once the prize of Hitler's personal collection. She also mentions his demise in a rather ironic tone.
