Mention the peculiar features of Nazi thinking?
The Nazis were a group of radicalized nationalists who emerged in the post–World War I Germany. The group, originally founded as the German Worker’s party, promoted German pride, anti-semitism and protested the Treaty of Versailles, the peace agreement that brought an end to World War 1(1914-1918). In 1921, Adolf Hitler, one of the most devastating fascists that ever walked the earth, became the leader of the Nazi Party and with his accession as the Chancellor of Germany in1933, Nazism took over central governance in the country. The period of dictatorial and totalitarian rule of the Nazi party is one of the most harrowing periods in the history of the world when millions of lives perished under fascist rule. Let’s try to take a look at the twisted thinking and ideals of the Nazi party.
The Nazi party did not sanction other parties and attempted to squash all other establishments and parties and wanted to detach socialism, communism and autonomy from Germany.The party endorsed pseudo-scientific beliefs of Aryn supremacy and aimed to create a homogenized German society based on racial purity.They aimed to occupy and conquer new regions to increase their natural assets and power.According to Nazism, the blue-eyed Nordic German Aryans were at the peak of the racial hierarchy while the Jews were regarded as the lowest strata of humans.In their belief, Jews were accountable for the economic unhappiness of the Germans.Nazis praised war and aggression.Nazis believed in the concept of Lebensraum or “living space”, i.e., territorial expansion into Central and Eastern European countries in order to establish German society to unite people from historically original German territories and ostracizing people from so-called inferior races.Nazis wanted to generate a separate racial section of pure Germans by physically terminating all those who were seen as alien communities by the Nazi party.A belief in the racial pecking order was highly predominant.The goal of the Nazis was to establish the “racially superior” Aryans all over the world and eradicate everyone in the way who did not fit the bill.
The Holocaust, spearheaded by the Nazis, was the genocide of the European Jews during the Second World War that killed about 6 million Jews and demolished two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe. The Nazis heartlessly killed people through mass shootings and exterminations camps alongside other brutal and inhuman acts of lethal violence. The harrowing episode in history finally came to an end at the end of World War 2 in May 1945.
