Deeper Themes of “Deathly Hallows”

In J. K. Rowlings latest Harry Potter book she makes a hommage to C. S. Lewis (perhaps ever so unconsciously) and the Narnia books in her emphasis on sacrifice in conquering death. Lewis used this as a Christian reference. Pagans believed something similar, but in a slightly different way.

Also, I feel she's discussing totalitarian regimes of all types...but my brain went straight to the Third Reich.
