German Nazism and the acts of the Nazi German state profoundly affected many countries, communities and peoples before, during and after World War II and the Holocaust.

 They Were in Search of Life. Suicide: the Consequences of German Deportation Policies An indictment of Germany's ...
The intellectuals associated with the Frankfurt School of thought, for whom the rise of Nazism was the result of the gullibility and backwardness of the working class, are one source of such views.
By means of this simplistic separation between Germans on the one side and refugees on the other, the authors evade the most significant division in society—not that between nations, but rather between rich and poor.
The baiting of immigrants and the splitting of the working class along national and colour lines, which are used to keep the working population in check and prevent a unified struggle against capital, can be ended through the international unification of the working class and the reorganisation of society along socialist lines.

 Review of Proctor's "The Nazi War on Cancer", by Pierre Lemieux
The German brand of fascism, National Socialism, was characterized also by racist (as opposed to purely nationalist) beliefs.
Against the twenty thousand German women who perhaps were saved from cancer by Nazi paternalist policies, one has to count not only the aggressions and deaths brought about by the political power necessary to effect this outcome, but also the cost to these women in terms of their own liberty and dignity.
Despite the tyrannical powers of the state, despite even the war, power was never completely centralized in Germany, contentious issues continued to be debated (at least within the Aryan tribe), cancer research was pursued, and the tobacco industry fought tooth and nail against the prohibitionists.

 Kristallnacht
The official German position on these events, which were clearly orchestrated by Goebbels, was that they were spontaneous outbursts.
The crucial question is whether the term was a Nazi euphemism for an all-out pogrom against German Jews and whether the Nazis used the term in a derisive manner.
Moreover, what disturbed the German populace was less the sight of synagogues burning (fires take place all the time, after all -- it depends on the scale) than of the savage and wasteful vandalism that confronted bystanders everywhere, disrupting the clean and orderly streets (to say nothing of consumer convenience).

 Bonhoeffer And The German Churches' Response To Nazism
Obviously, the response of the German churches to Nazism is a big issue for Christianity.

But through all that, his is an ethic of responsibility."[11] Ethics of responsibility, a concept dating back to Max Weber which was also developed by the theologian H.R. Niebuhr, tend to stress our duty to respond to the world the way it is, with uncomfortable actions sometimes called for.

 Calling Those Who Disagree With Them "NAZIS" Is A Left Wing Fanatic Tactic by Marti Linder - Sierra Times.com
From that phony premise, calling anyone who bought German stocks a Nazi, they move on to tar living Americans whose views are a bit to the right center with the "Nazi" label.

History was rewritten, German kids were taught to be "Politically Correct" little Nazis and the world knows the rest of the story, to our sorrow.

 On Heidegger's Nazism and Philosophy
Heidegger's failure to object to the political consequences of the Nazi worldview is significant, since it suggests an incapacity of his thought -- that is, the thought of a great thinker, in the opinion of some observers the most important thinker of this century -- to grasp the political specificity of National Socialism.
The double consequence of Heidegger's analysis is to forge a metaphysical link between the question of Being and technology, and to uncover a metaphysical ground to oppose technology and modernity.
This is indeed characteristic of Nietzsche and Heidegger, as it is of the intersection of German and Japanese fascism in Eugen Herrigel's Zen in the Art of Archery, considered in a separate critique of Zen.

To the extent that any of them were unaware of the costs and consequences to others of what they were involved in — and in many cases excelling at — it was because of their absolute refusal to see.

 Yesterday and Today: Nazis and the Righteous Right

For Germany, the sense of being aggrieved was related to the famously vindictive Treaty of Versailles that settled the overt hostilities of World War I but left Germans with smoldering bitterness against what they saw as injustice and injury.
