Description

This educational module analyzes the role that German nationalism played in the formation and expansion of Nazi Germany as well as its prosecution of the Holocaust. In redefining what it meant to be "German," the Nazi regime appropriated German nationalism in order to justify and rationalize the Holocaust as well as its conquest of vast swathes of Europe. Through examining a diverse range of primary sources, this module reflects on how ideas of German nationalism laid the foundation for genocide.
