Nazism ( Nationalsozialismus , National Socialism ), is the ideology and practice of the Nazi Party and of Nazi Germany . [ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ] [ 4 ] [ 5 ] [ 6 ] [ 7 ] [ 8 ] It is a politically syncretic variety of fascism that incorporates policies, tactics and philosophies from right- and left-wing ideologies; in practice, Nazism is a far right form of politics. [ 9 ]

Post- World War II Nazism ( neo-Nazism ) has adherents in several countries around the world, although it remains a fringe movement. The ideology, iconography, and literature of Nazism are now outlawed in Germany and some other European countries. Due to Nazism’s racism and antisemitism, the term Nazi and affiliated ideas and symbols (e.g. the Swastika , SS runes , SS uniforms ) denote and connote white supremacist racism in Europe and North America.

The term Nazi derives from the first two syllables of Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Workers’ Party). [ 16 ] Members of the Nazi Party identified themselves as Nationalsozialisten (National Socialists), rarely as Nazis . The German term Nazi parallels the analogous political term Sozi , an abbreviation for a member of the Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands ( Social Democratic Party of Germany ). [ 17 ] [ 18 ] In 1933, when Adolf Hitler assumed power of the German government, usage of the term Nazi diminished in Germany, although Austrian anti-Nazis used it as an insult. [ 18 ]

Nazism , also spelled Naziism , in full National Socialism , German Nationalsozialismus , totalitarian movement led by Adolf Hitler as head of the Nazi Party in Germany . In its intense nationalism , mass appeal, and dictatorial rule, Nazism shared many elements with Italian fascism . However, Nazism was far more extreme both in its ideas and in its practice. In almost every respect it was an anti-intellectual and atheoretical movement, emphasizing the will of the charismatic dictator as the sole source of inspiration of a people and a nation, as well as a vision of annihilation of all enemies of the Aryan Volk as the one and only goal of Nazi policy.

Hitler’s intellectual viewpoint was influenced during his youth not only by these currents in the German tradition but also by specific Austrian movements that professed various political sentiments, notably those of pan-Germanic expansionism and anti-Semitism . Hitler’s ferocious nationalism, his contempt of the Slavs, and his hatred of the Jews can largely be explained by his bitter experiences as an unsuccessful artist living a threadbare existence on the streets of Vienna, the capital of the multiethnic Austro-Hungarian Empire .

Hitler added to Pan-Germanic aspirations the almost mystical fanaticism of a faith in the mission of the German race and the fervour of a social revolutionary gospel. This gospel was most fully expressed in Hitler’s personal testament Mein Kampf (1925–27; “My Struggle”), in which he outlined both his practical aims and his theories of race and propaganda.
