Nazi Racial Ideology
Hitler saw the world as the struggle between peoples for existence.
A people is a distinct ethnic-biological group.
They may not mix with others without bringing on decay and corruption, leading ultimately to a people's extinction.
A healthy, vigorous people expands its population base of racially healthy individuals and expands its territorial base at the expense of its neighbors.
A dying people has a declining population, marred by race-mixing and territorial losses to its neighbors.
History is the struggle of nations for living space and living space is about the continued existence of a race.
The Image of the Jews in Nazi Ideology
Jews were special enemies of the German people.
Unlike other races, Jews had no living space of their own.
Jews sought to dominate host peoples by destroying the nation-state and establishing Jewish world domination.
The goals of Jews, by definition, were the genetic bastardization of all peoples and the elimination of all states.
