"Blackletter"
"What?"
"You know, the Nazi font."
"Oh, yeah."

You and me, basically. You explained that it's an explanation that's been unfortunately necessary before.

In the nineteenth century, the use of antiqua alongside Fraktur increased, leading to the Antiqua-Fraktur dispute, which lasted until the Nazis abandoned Fraktur in 1942. Since it was so common, all kinds of blackletter tend to be called fraktur in German.
